“Ye Bhai Gaya…”: Axar Patel reveals new details about Rishabh Pant’s “fateful” accident

Saturday marks one year since the horrific car accident involving India’s star wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. The accident occurred when Pant’s car hit a barrier on the Delhi-Roorkee Expressway. South was seriously injured, but was lucky to somehow escape his burning car, thanks to the timely assistance of a passerby. Pant’s India and Delhi Capitals (DC) teammate Axar Patel has now revealed new details of the “fateful” incident that continues to keep the wicketkeeper-batsman away from competitive cricket.

“At seven or eight in the morning my phone rang. Pratima’s phone came. Pratima asked me: ‘When did you last talk to Rishabh?’ Rishabh Pant last time? I told her that I was about to talk to him ‘last day but I didn’t.’ Pratima said that she needed Pant’s mother’s contact number because the player met with an accident. The first time, I thought he was gone),” Axar said in a video uploaded by DC showing Pant’s timeline of accident and recovery.

Pant is recovering well in a bid to make a comeback in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. He was with the DC franchise at the auction table on December 19 this year in Dubai.

While Pant continues to work on his recovery, he recently spoke out about the car accident, admitting that he is lucky to be alive.

“The kind of accident I had, I’m lucky to be alive. The first part of the recovery was very difficult with a lot of pain but now the recovery is going well,” Pant said in a video posted by IPL on X.

“More physically because at the beginning there was a lot of pain to take. But just looking forward to the journey so far. I think things are going really well from a recovery point of view.”

“I felt like I couldn’t face people and everything, and I felt like I had to do something that would give me confidence and I wanted to support my team at the same time because I was playing for them. I love my team.” All the way, so I wanted to show my support even in the worst times. So that was the idea and I think it’s part of the healing process.”
