Rishabh Pant received some sage advice from Shikhar Dhawan in 2019 to drive cautiously. On Friday morning, Rishabh was involved in a terrible accident while en route to Roorkee (December 30).

The wicketkeeper-batsman was traveling to his hometown to surprise his family after recently returning to India from Dubai. He fell asleep at the wheel and the automobile swerved out of his control.

While users are wishing the cricketer well, some of them posted an old clip of Shikhar Dhawan giving him advice. For Delhi Capitals during the 2019 IPL, Rishabh and Dhawan had a conversation (DC).

The rookie cricketer sought assistance from the seasoned player throughout the conversation. Three years earlier, Dhawan gave Rishabh some wise counsel, telling him to “Gaadi araam se chalaya kar.” The two laughed together and then shook hands.
