Rishabh Pant, India’s top wicketkeeper-batter, “is doing well and has been relocated to a private room owing to fear of infection,” Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) Director Shyam Sharma informed today.
“We notified his family & medical management that he was to be transferred to a luxury room due to infection concerns. “He’s improving and will be OK soon,” Sharma added.
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said on Sunday that the state government will offer all assistance for the 25-year-treatment old’s after he was critically injured in a traffic accident near Roorkee on his way to surprise his mother on December 30.
Pant was driving alone and apparently fell asleep at the wheel when the tragedy occurred. The cricketer has suffered two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, as well as injuries to his right wrist, ankle, toe, and back, according to a statement issued by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in collaboration with the Max Hospital Dehradun where he has been admitted.
On Saturday, Sharma expressed worry over visitors swarming to the hospital to see cricketer Rishabh Pant, who is undergoing treatment.
Those who are going to encounter Pant should avoid him since there is a risk of infection. “”There should be no VIP movement to meet Pant, and anyone visiting him should avoid it since Pant is prone to sickness,” Sharma said over the phone.
Shyam Sharma visited Pant at Max Hospital in Dehradun on Saturday. “He is recuperating nicely and also in good health,” Sharma said. Our BCCI physicians contact with the doctors at this facility. Jay Shah is monitoring it. He’ll be admitted here for the time being. He informed me that when the collision happened, he was attempting to save (his car) from a pothole.”
Pant escaped the near-fatal tragedy on Friday with burns and other injuries that would need reconstructive surgery, and he might be evacuated to Delhi if necessary. He was returning from Delhi to Roorkee when his automobile crashed with the divider near Hammadpur Jhal on the Narsan boundary of Roorkee.
On Friday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India published a statement saying, “Pant has two cuts on his forehead, a ligament rupture in his right knee, and injuries to his right wrist, ankle, and toe, as well as abrasions on his back. Rishabh’s health is stable, and he has been sent to Max Hospital in Dehradun, where he will undergo MRI scans to determine the extent of his injuries and plan his next course of treatment, according to a BCCI statement distributed to the media.”
