Dehradun: Cricketer Rishabh Pant was injured in a car accident near Manglaur in Uttarakhand’s Haridwar district early on Friday, police said.

He was rushed to the Saksham hospital first and from there he was referred to the Max Hospital in Dehradun, he said.
The 25-year-old, who was going to his home in Roorkee, was taken to a local hospital, sources close to the cricketer confirmed.

“He himself was driving the car when it hit the divider on Delhi Narson border. He was immediately taken to Saksham Hospital but will be shifted to Max Hospital for further treatment,” the source said.
Pant was left out of the upcoming white-ball series against Sri Lanka as he was supposed to join NCA for strength and conditioning programme ahead of February’s Border Gavaskar Trophy.
He played a big role in India’s two-Test series win against Bangladesh.
