After working hard at the National Cricket Academy for days, Rishabh Pant has reached Uttarakhand to take part in a special religious ritual. The India star was involved in a horrific car accident in December last year and was lucky to come out alive.
The car hit the divider and caught fire while Rishabh Pant was still inside it. He, however, managed to drag himself out of the car before being taken to the hospital by some locals. He had sustained serious injuries in the road accident that took place in Roorkee. He was soon airlifted to Mumbai for surgery and has been recovering since then.
Rishabh Pant‘s recovery pace is nothing less than remarkable as he has already started walking without any aid. Recently, he was also seen batting in a local match and has continued to give his fans positive updates on his fitness regularly.
Rishabh Pant in Uttarakhand:
Rishabh Pant has decided to take a much-needed break from the rigorous routine he is undergoing in order to make a swift return to competitive cricket. The wicketkeeper-batsman landed at the Sahastradhara Heliport in Uttarakhand. On Tuesday (October 3), he will visit Kedarnath and Badrinath, two of the most important pilgrimage sites for Hindus.
As per media reports, Rishabh Pant is set to take part in a special ritual at the behest of God. According to family friend and Khanpur MLA Umesh Kumar, the India star was planning to visit Kedarnath during his treatment. However, he had to change his plans after doctors prohibited him from visiting the mountains, according to a report in India Today.
During the religious ritual, Rishabh Pant will also pray for Team India’s success in the ICC World Cup 2023. The wicketkeeper-batsman would have been a crucial member of the team for the World Cup if not for the unfortunate accident.
He is unlikely to return to action this year. Reports have suggested that the left-handed batsman is likely to make his much-awaited return to international cricket in January next year when India hosts England for a five-match Test series.
