Rishabh Pant
  • As you are aware, any road accidents of varying degrees of injury are bound to be not only traumatic for the individual(s) for months but also physically demanding tremendous resilience to get over the nightmarish experience sooner rather than later. It’s easier said than done since the harrowing accident would have taken a great toll mentally as well as physically. All of us may have encountered several such incidents involving our near and dear ones or for that matter, ourselves in extremely traumatic road accidents, to say the least. External injuries apart, the mental agony accompanying the outward pain must be inexplicable for the majority. The medical experts are unequivocal in terming the trauma as life-altering with scars remaining etched forever.

  • The entire nation was shocked when the most dashing, promising, and exponentially emerging cricketing talent like batter-wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was involved in a horrifying accident in December 2022. The visuals of the damaged car would have sent shivers down the spine of the people following the fortunes of the dynamic young cricketer. Even worse was the visuals of injured Rishabh Pant himself while being admitted to the hospital after the accident. Those visuals of the damaged car and Pant were not only disturbing but also would make most of us wonder how anybody could even live to narrate the tale. It is no less than a miracle that Pant could live and tell the tale to the entire world of how he was so blessed to stand on his feet yet again.
  • When every medical expert and the discerning people were unanimous in ruling out Pant from immediate recovery for the extent of physical damage to the knees was severe. Many felt Pant could never be the professional cricketer he aspired to be. Forget about being a professional cricketer, many thought that he would never play the game again. Remember, Pant is not only a dynamic batsman but also a wicketkeeper whose strenuous physical demands cannot be simply replicated by a grievously injured individual so soon. As it is, any sport is physically demanding and a sportsman recovering from the same and attempting to recoup afresh means unimaginable fortitude, resilience, and a never-say-die attitude to get the erstwhile mojo back. Pant had it all.

  • After the initial reconstruction surgeries and great medical attention extended by the experts, Pant started the rehabilitation journey in right earnest. The great desire to don the international cricketer’s mantle yet again must have been the great driving force for the young cricketer. As we know now, Pant has not only fully recovered from the life-threatening accident but also has made it to the T20 World Cup to be held in the Caribbean Islands and the USA in June. He has proved his match fitness by showcasing undiminished skills in the ongoing IPL by not only notching up impressive scores in front of the wicket but also showcasing great skills behind the wickets. It’s truly inspirational to see how Pant has recovered fully. Did someone say mind over matter?
