Star Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, Rishabh Pant, continues to make remarkable strides in his recovery journey following a serious car crash on December 30, 2022. Currently undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, Pant has been sharing glimpses of his training sessions, showcasing his inspiring progress.
In a recent video, the 26-year-old revealed a transformative journey, demonstrating his evolution from walking with the aid of a walker to effortlessly running. Accompanying the footage, Pant imparted words of inspiration, emphasizing the importance of perseverance and resilience in the face of adversity.
“Seems like you forgot. Let me remind you… Remember when it was hard and it was overwhelming and you felt afraid and still walked alone? You didn’t have the answers then and couldn’t see the way and wanted to give up? You still kept going. Never forget that,” expressed Pant in the caption, motivating his followers.

Having last played for India in December 2022 during the second Test against Bangladesh in Mirpur, Pant’s absence has been keenly felt, especially in Test matches where his dynamic style of play has a significant impact. His aggressive approach, particularly on turning pitches, is sorely missed as it often unsettles spinners.
The wicketkeeper-batsman sat out two major ICC events, the World Test Championship 2023 final and the ODI World Cup 2023. Looking ahead, with the T20 World Cup 2024 scheduled to commence on June 1 in the West Indies and the USA, Pant is eager to regain match fitness and represent India in the T20 extravaganza.
Before that, fans can anticipate his return to action with the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League 2024, where he will also lead the team. Pant’s supporters eagerly await his comeback to the cricket field, anticipating the entertainment that comes with his powerful sixes and lively on-field chatter captured by the stump mic.
