In a rather tragic incident, Team India’s wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant has sustained serious injures after a horrific car crash near Roorkee, Uttarakhand on Friday (December 30). While Pant was initially rushed to the Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre where he was treated for impact injuries, he has now been shifted to the Max Hospital in Dehradun.
In a latest update, image of the X-ray report of the injured cricketer has made its way to social media. Notably, the BCCI has already confirmed that Pant hasn’t sustained any fractures but has a ligament tear in his right knee. In addition, several reports have emerged which suggest that Pant could require a plastic surgery.
