WATCH- Rishabh Pant shares video of him getting hydrotherapy as part of his recovery process

Rishabh Pant is a long journey to full recovery after his near-fatal accident in December.

 Rishabh Pant | InstagramTalented India keeper-batter Rishabh Pant was hugely missed as India won the recent 2023 Border-Gavaskar Trophy at home by beating Australia 2-1. He was missed as two new Aussies spinners Todd Murphy and Matt Kuhnemann troubled the Indian batters.

Pant had been the catalyst for India’s amazing 2021 Border-Gavaskar Trophy win in Australia and everyone was left in shock when he met with an accident while driving from Delhi to his hometown in Uttarakhand on the eve of New Year.

His car tumbled after he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a divider on the Delhi-Dehradun Highway near Roorkee. Pant managed to escape the car before it burst into flames and was then helped by the police to reach a nearby hospital for first aid and treatment.

After receiving treatment in Dehradun’s Max Hospital, the BCCI airlifted him to Mumbai and he was admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, where he underwent surgery to repair the damage to his knee.

Meanwhile, Pant is keeping his spirits up and recently posted a video on Instagram of himself walking in a swimming pool, getting hydrotherapy, possibly as a part of his recovery process.
