Shyam Sharma, the director of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), expressed concerns on Saturday about the large number of people coming to see Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant, who is receiving treatment in a hospital in Uttarakhand.
The 25-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman collided with a divider in his car on Friday morning close to Roorkee after making his last match appearance for India against Bangladesh in the second Test of a two-match series last week in Dhaka. The cricketer suffered several injuries as a result of the tragic accident, but he is currently receiving treatment at Dehradun’s Max Hospital and is not in danger. According to reports, Pant has two wounds on his forehead, a torn ligament in his right knee, and wounds on his right wrist, ankle, and toe. He reportedly also suffered abrasion wounds to his back, right wrist, and right ankle.
“Those who are going to meet Pant should avoid, as there are chances of infection,” Shyam Sharma said.
“There should be no VIP movement to meet Pant, and people visiting him should avoid it as there are chances of infection for Pant,” DDCA director Shyam Sharma told ANI.
“He is stable and recovering well. Our BCCI doctors are in touch with the doctors here. Jay Shah is monitoring it. As of now, he’ll remain admitted here. He told me that he tried to save (his car) from a pothole (when the accident occurred),” said Shyam Sharma.
