DDCA director meets Pant; expresses satisfaction at medical treatment

DEHRADUN: Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) director Shyam Sharma on Saturday met Rishabh Pant at Max Hospital here and expressed satisfaction at the treatment being given to the cricket star at the facility.
“He (Pant) is being looked after well by doctors here. The BCCI is also in touch with them, taking updates on his condition. As of now, he will be kept here only,” Sharma told reporters after meeting the cricketer.
India’s star cricketer had a miraculous escape when his luxury car crashed into a road divider and caught fire after he dozed off at the wheel on the Delhi-Dehradun highway in the early hours of Friday.
The 25-year-old, who was on his way to his hometown Roorkee to surprise his mother, suffered injuries on his head, back and feet, but is in a stable condition, according to police.
Replying to a question, Sharma said Pant told him that it was dark and the accident took place when he was trying to negotiate a pothole.
Earlier in the day, Bollywood actors Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher also met Pant at the hospital.
“He (Pant) is doing fine. We met him as fans. Let us pray that he recovers soon and we see him playing again,” Kapoor told reporters after coming out of the hospital. —PTI
