Rishabh Pant, the young Indian wicketkeeper, met with an accident near sunrise on December 30, Friday and fans are hoping for the speedy recovery of the southpaw, given that the pictures of his wrecked car started making rounds on the internet. The batter’s car had a collision with a divider at the highway in the Narsan border area and eventually caught fire after the collision.
As things stand, the recent reports from Dainik Jagran suggested that the southpaw tried to come out of the car and a few local people looted his money as he lay down on the floor. To add more, the reports claimed that a few youngsters, who saw him lying on the floor, stole his money instead of asking him for assistance.
On the other hand, several reports are claiming that Rishabh Pant is out of danger and sustained no fractures or internal injuries, much to the relief of the Indian cricket fans. Wishes for his recovery poured in from all ends, including the likes of Sam Billings, Suresh Raina, Ricky Ponting, and Mohammed Shami.

Rishabh Pant managed to come out of the car by breaking the front glass once the car caught fire and reports revealed that the batter called the ambulance all by himself. It remains to be seen if Pant will be able to come back to the Indian squad at the earliest and the fans hope for their presence in the 50-over World Cup set to take place in India in 2023.
One of the integral members of the Indian team, Rishabh Pant recently played a few dependable knocks during the Test series in Bangladesh. His knock of 93 runs in the second Test helped Team India to revive their innings in the match. The wicketkeeper-batter had been rested for the ODIs and T20Is against Sri Lanka and it was later reported that he will undergo recovery at the NCA.
