Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who met with an accident, has undergone plastic surgery on his forehead to repair the damage and is responding well to the treatment. The 25-year-old sustained multiple injuries after his car hit a divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway in Roorkee.

Pant was taken to Saksham Hospital Multispeciality and Trauma Center, and after getting initial treatment at the local hospital, he was shifted to Max Hospital in Dehradun on Saturday, December 31, and he is currently stable and out of danger. The southpaw was airlifted by the BCCI on Wednesday to the Kokilaben hospital in Mumbai.
