Rishab Pant opens about the horrific car accidents, says: ‘Felt my time in this world is up…’

Rishabh Pant is almost out of action for more than a year and he is reportedly trying to make his comeback in IPL 2024. Pant, who is a wicketkeeper-batter, fell victim to a bone-chilling car accident in December 2022 near Roorkee, Uttarakhand.

Pant had a ligament tear in his right knee and two cuts on his forehead. After the accident, he has been out of competitive cricket. While Pant is gearing up for his expected comeback in the Indian Premiere League as he was also present for the IPL 2024 auction at the Delhi Capitals table. It has also been reported that Pant had also attended a DC camp in November.

Recently, Pant was interviewed by Star Sport, where he opened up on his accident. The 26-year-old shared his feeling about how he felt that his time in the world was up, and was lucky that it was not that serious.
“First time in my life I felt like my time in this world is up. During the accident I was aware of the wounds, but I was lucky as it could have been even more serious. I was feeling that someone saved me. I asked the doctor how long will it take for me to recover, he said it would take 16-18 months. I knew I had to work hard to cut this recovery time,” he said.

All eyes will be on Pant this year, when he returns in the IPL this year, especially with the T20 World Cup which is also scheduled for this year.
