Rishabh Pant is under the observation of plastic surgeons and orthopedics at Max Hospital and the hospital administration will release a detailed medical bulletin after examining him completely.
The car he was driving:
Though there was a little confusion as to whether Rishabh Pant was driving a Mercedes or BMW, now the Uttarakhand Police has confirmed that the young cricketer was driving a Mercedes-AMG GLE43 Coupe. This car is certainly one of the best cars when it comes to luxury sedans but it is being said that the results of its crash tests are not good.
How did he meet with the accident?
DGP Ashok Kumar informed the mediapersons that in his statement, Rishabh Pant stated that he fell asleep while driving because of which he met with the accident and his car caught fire.
For how long will he be away from the cricket field?
Though the good news is that the cricketer hasn’t suffered any severe injuries, still it is being said that he may not play cricket for a year so there seems to be no chance of him playing in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
While BCCI is taking all the steps for providing necessary help to Rishabh Pant, the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Pushkar Singh Dhami has also assured that all arrangements will be made for providing him proper treatment.
He will undergo MRI scans to ascertain the extent of his injuries and formulate his further course of treatment. BCCI is in constant touch with Rishabh’s family while the Medical Team is in close contact with the doctors currently treating Rishabh: BCCI
