India Cricket News


India wicket-keeper/batter Rishabh Pant has been cleared of serious injury after a car accident on early Friday (30th December) morning.

The 25-year-old was reportedly driving from his residence in Roorkee to New Delhi, when his vehicle hit a road divider at around 5:15am.

Eye-witnesses claim Pant’s car caught fire, though he was able to escape, albeit with injuries to his head, back and feet.

Several early news reports claim Pant was then admitted to Saksham Hospital near Delhi, though may be transferred to a hospital in Dehradun. He remains in a stable condition.

VVS Laxman, the chief of India’s National Cricket Academy (where Pant was due to travel in early January) said on Twitter that the left-hander is “out of danger,” though the extent of his injuries is not yet fully known.

Pant was a member of India’s Test team for both victories on their recent tour of Bangladesh.
