Star wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant met with an accident early on Friday near Roorkee in Uttarakhand with the Board of Control for Cricket in India later confirming that he is stable.

“Pant met with an accident between Manglaur and Narsan in Haridwar district. He has now been shifted to a hospital in Dehradun after receiving primary treatment in a hospital in Roorkee,” Pant’s Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Capitals had said on Twitter.

The BCCI said he was admitted to Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre where he was treated for impact injuries.

“Rishabh has two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and has suffered abrasion injuries on his back,” the statement released by BCCI secretary Jay Shah said.

“Rishabh’s condition remains stable, and he has now been shifted to Max Hospital, Dehradun, where he will undergo MRI scans to ascertain the extent of his injuries and formulate his further course of treatment. The BCCI is in constant touch with Rishabh’s family while the Medical Team is in close contact with the doctors currently treating Rishabh.”

Pant’s car is reported to have hit a divider near Manglaur when he was coming from Delhi, Haridwar Senior Superintendent of Police Ajai Singh is quoted as saying by PTI.

“Praying for Rishabh Pant. Thankfully he is out of danger,” former Indian cricketer and head of National Cricket Academy VVS Laxman had written in a tweet.

Pant was most recently involved in the Test series in Bangladesh where he played a significant role in the 2-0 series win. In the recently announced squads for the home series against Sri Lanka, Pant was absent from the ODI and T20I squads with ESPNCricinfo reporting that he was due to reach the NCA for some rehab work.
