Indian star wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant recently took everyone by confusion and surprise when he updated his birth date on social media. Pant, who is on the road to recovery following a fatal accident he met in December 2022, recently updated his ‘second birth date’ on all his social media platforms. Meanwhile, the 25-year-old cricketer didn’t clear the reason behind the same back then. However, the young cricketer recently specified the reason and the noble cause that was his intention behind changing the bio.
As India is celebrating National Doctor’s Day on July 1, Saturday, the youth icon did his part to thank the doctors who saved his life after the death-threatening accident. A few days ago, he updated his social media bios and added, “Second D.O.B.: - 05.01.2023." The Roorkee-born is undergoing rehab and showing wonderful progress as a token of gratitude towards his doctors, the cricketer dedicated his ‘Second Date of Birth’ to the noble professionals.

Pant met with the accident while travelling from Delhi to Roorkee in his car when he fell asleep while driving, which caused his car to collide with a divider on the Narsan border of Roorkee, in Uttarakhand. The Delhi Capitals wicketkeeper made a miraculous escape from the car that caught fire after the accident. The cricketer is currently at the National Cricket Academy where he is undergoing recovery and is sure to miss the upcoming ODI World Cup 2023 slated to begin from October 5 in India. The inaugural game will be played between the reigning champions, England and runners up of 2019 edition, New Zealand at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
