The Indian cricket fraternity was taken aback when the news of Rishabh Pant’s car accident broke. Everyone was in haste to know what exactly happened and if the 24-year-old was doing fine or not. India captain Rohit Sharma, who was in Maldives with his family at that moment, also came across the piece of news and immediately inquired about the entire situation. Sharma was really worried about Pant and wanted to meet him at the earliest.
As revealed by a senior journalist, the Indian cricket team captain immediately got in touch with the people in the know of the developments and asked for every available detail. The journalist also claimed that Sharma was ready to come to India from Maldives and meet Pant as and when it was possible.
“It was around 8:45 AM when the news of Rishabh Pant’s car accident came. I tweeted about it around the same time. Then, about half an hour later, the Indian captain (Rohit Sharma) called up to find out what had exactly happened. He was in the Maldives at that time, he was very concerned. He wanted to find out about the news so he got in touch with me via a friend. I explained to him that Pant has suffered some injuries but he is fine. Rohit was very concerned and he also told me that he is coming to India on the 1st (of January),” said the journalist in a video.
While Rohit did not post anything on social media, the Indian captain tried at his level to find out about Pant’s well-being. Meanwhile, the likes of Virat Kohli and KL Rahul prayed for Pant's speedy recovery on social media. " Get well soon @RishabhPant17. Praying for your recovery," tweeted Kohli.
