Karnataka, Aug 29: India’s star wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant made a surprise visit to the Indian Team training camp in Alur, Karnataka ahead of the Asia Cup 2023. The road to recovery for Pant after the fatal car accident last year in December seems to be a very speedy one.
The 25-year-old took a break from his recovery at Bengaluru's National Cricket Academy to join his teammates in preparing for the forthcoming Asia Cup 2023.
The video shared by the Indian Cricket Team's Instagram handle in which Pant can be seen interacting with his mates and cheering for the performances. His resilience and determined approach to the sport makes him a true athlete.
The motivation that he shares with his fans and teammates is undoubtedly true to his nature. A few days back he was seen interacting with younger kids at JSW cricket club, Bangalore where he was invited as a guest.
His fast recovery from the injury combined with his spirit portrays the true persona of a champion.
The accident which took place last year on December 30, left everyone shocked praying for his wellness. The Indian team missed the service of his star wicket-keeper batter, suffering a big loss in the ICC World Test Championship Final against Australia.
Despite the accident, Pant stayed focused on his recovery and expressed respect to every well-wisher. He resumed his batting practices in the net and did some wicket-keeping also.
However, Pant’s comeback to the Indian Team is still a long road to go. He might make a comeback to the team earlier than expected but not before IPL 2024. (IANS)
