India wicketkeeper to be flown to Mumbai for surgery following car crash

Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper for India, will be transported by air ambulance to Mumbai for surgery after suffering injuries in a vehicle accident last week.

At the Max Hospital in Dehradun, Pant has been receiving medical care.

The 25-year-old cricket player will also undergo “subsequent treatments for ligament tears,” according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

According to police, Pant “dozed off” and lost control, causing his car to turn over twice and catch fire.

“The Board will make every effort to facilitate and expedite Rishabh’s rehabilitation process and will provide him with all the support he needs during this period,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in a statement.

In the northern state of Uttarakhand, near to his hometown of Roorkee, Pant crashed on December 30 between Mangalaur and Nursan.

According to reports in India, the Delhi Capitals player was hurt in his head, back, and leg.
