The bus driver saw Pant’s car being rammed into the divider on the Delhi-Haridwar Highway and wasted no time in helping him. Reportedly, he did not recognize the cricketer as he does not watch cricket. Former Indian batter and current NCA Chief VVS Laxman also expressed gratitude to Mann for his selfless help to Pant.

It has been said that Rishabh Pant has suffered maximum injuries in his head and legs. Due to this, an MRI scan of his brain and spine was also done and the report has given great relief to the fans and Pant himself and it has come out to be normal.

Doctors have said that many more tests are yet to be done for Rishabh Pant. MRI scan of his ankle and knee was also to be done. But it has been postponed because Pant was in a lot of pain and also had swelling. Now, this scan can be done on Saturday (December 31).
