According to doctors, Pant is able to speak and is no longer in imminent danger.

Pant was travelling to Roorkee in Uttarakhand when the tragedy happened early on Friday. His automobile, which sustained significant damage in the collision, is said to have collided with a road divider before catching fire. Pant was first taken to a neighbourhood hospital and then sent to Dehradun*.

Director General of Uttarakhand Police Ashok Kumar was quoted by NDTV as stating, “Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant’s automobile met with an accident at around 5:30 am.” “The event happened in Mohammedpur Jat, a town close to Roorkee; the automobile hit a divider and caught fire. He was taken to the hospital in Roorkee and is now being transported to Dehradun.”

Dr. Sushil Nagar, who oversaw the emergency care, said that Pant had abrasions on his back, a ligament tear in his knee, and laceration wounds on his forehead, one immediately over the left eye. His right ankle is also hurt. The initial X-rays, however, appeared to show that Pant had no fractures and no burns on his body.

He has been transported to the Max Hospital in Dehradun, where more tests, such as an MRI, will help doctors establish the extent of his injuries and the best next steps in his care. At 6 a.m., Pant arrived at the hospital.

“He [Pant] is still being examined. There doesn’t seem to be a serious reason for concern right now because he is steady. We will provide a thorough bulletin following the review, “Dr. Dishant Yagnik, medical director of Max Hospital in Dehradun, said “He is talking and cognizant, and the doctors are looking where he says he is uncomfortable. Plastic and orthopaedic surgeons are currently examining him. Additionally, we are checking for any inside wounds.”

The Indian teams for the T20I and ODI home series against Sri Lanka commencing on January 3 did not include Pant, 25, in their lineups. Before the Test series against Australia in February, he was scheduled to travel to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for strength and conditioning exercises.
