However, Pant was lucky enough to escape with injuries after his car crashed into a road divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway near
Roorkee on the morning of December 30, 2022. Having completed his recovery process, Pant is set to return during the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

In part two of a special series titled ‘Miracle Man’ on, he said, “Firstly, rehab is very irritating. The worst thing about rehab is that you have to do the same thing again and again. At the same time, you have to do it because you don’t have any other choice. It’s boring. You have to do the same stuff, you have to see the same people, but you have to do it at the end of the day. The more boring you do, the better you get [sic].”

Rishabh Pant worked hard at the NCA

At the National Cricket Academy (NCA), Rishabh Pant went through periods of erratic mood swings as the recovery period dragged on as well. He, however, acknowledged the support from the staff and termed them understanding and considerate as well.

“People in NCA were very welcoming. It’s easier said than done – you are feeling frustrated and take it out on people. At the same time, when they take it in a good sense, like, ‘he is also going through a tough time. He needs to recover.’ Every time, you are not in the same mood. During such a long injury period, you are bound to get frustrated. During that period, the NCA was very supportive [sic].” Rishabh Pant added. “Really confident [about] getting back on the field. It’s been amazing. I feel so happy when I go to the ground. I think the love of cricket has gone up. I used to love it more than anything before also. Still, there is an increase in that. I just love being on the field.”
