Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant recalled his car accident and said - 'That day I felt that my time in the world was over.' The 26-year-old Pant spoke openly about the incident for the first time.

In a conversation with sports broadcaster Star Sports, Pant said- 'For the first time in my life I felt that my time was up. At the time of the accident I knew where I was injured. It could have been more serious, but I was lucky. Pant joked that I had taken an SUV, but after the accident, it turned into a sedan.

A year ago, on December 30, 2022, Rishabh Pant's car met with an accident while traveling from Delhi to Dehradun. Now he has recovered and can make a comeback in cricket from the next IPL season.

Highlights of conversation with Pant-

  • I am alive because of Rajat-Nishu Pant said- He is alive because of Rajat and Nishu Kumar. Both took Pant out of the car after the accident. As soon as Pant came out, the car was completely burnt. Panta said - I will be grateful to these two boys for the rest of my life.
  • The knee was completely dislocated, " Pant said recalling the time of the accident. "My right knee was completely dislocated and twisted 180 degrees. I asked bystanders to help me push the knee back into place.
  • Lucky I didn't lose my leg Pant says he was tired of the pain and now considers himself lucky that he didn't lose his leg during the accident. If a nerve other than the bone had been damaged it would have also likely separated my leg from the body.

Started thinking about the future after the accident
Pant said that since I started playing cricket I never thought about the future, but after this injury I started thinking about the future. I asked the doctor how long it would take me to recover from the injury.

I said that different people say ten things and only you can give me clarification. So the doctor said that it may take 16 to 18 months. I then told the doctor that I will subtract six months from the time you give.
