Rishabh Pant issues first statement after accident

Rishabh Pant has released a statement on Twitter after his car accident, thanking the fans, BCCI and medical team for their support.

Pant was involved in a road accident in the early hours of 30 December as he was driving from Roorkee to New Delhi.

Eyewitnesses and videos that surfaced later showed Pant’s car had caught fire but he was able to escape. The BCCI confirmed that the left-hander had suffered injuries to his head, back and feet. He had two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee and had also hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and suffered abrasion injuries on his back.

The BCCI then arranged for Pant to be shifted from Dehradun to Mumbai for further treatment.

The update stated that Pant would undergo surgery and subsequent procedures for the ligament tears he suffered and would be monitored by the BCCI medical team going forward.

“The Board will make every effort to aid and expedite the recovery process of Rishabh and will provide him with all the support he needs during this period,” the statement said.
