India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, shared a video of himself climbing stairs without any support. 

The star cricketer took to his Instagram and shared the video where he can be seen climbing the stairs. His caption reads, “Not bad yaar Rishabh. Simple things can be difficult sometimes.”

He also shared another video where he can be seen working on his right leg movement, taking support from a wooden stick, while grimacing in pain at times due to the pain in his right knee.

As soon as Pant shared the video, fans, friends and fellow cricketers flooded the comment section with ‘get well soon’ wishes.

"Keep going, Rishabh," wrote Delhi Capitals while his sister Sakshi Pant commented, "My star."

Meanwhile, India women's all-rounder Harleen Deol hilariously wrote, "Well done boy, keep your bhangra performance ready." (sic)

“Keep going brother,” wished former Australia opener Matthew Hayden.

It is worth mentioning that Pant miraculously survived a tragic accident on Dec 30, 2022, after his car collided with a divider and caught fire on the Delhi-Dehradun highway while on the way to his, hometown Roorkee to surprise his mother.

The 25-year-old was initially taken to Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre, before being admitted to Max Hospital, Dehradun. Pant suffered a right knee ligament tear, two cuts on his forehead, and also hurt his right wrist, ankle, and toe apart from abrasion injuries on his back.

Later, Pant was shifted to Mumbai via an air ambulance for surgery and further treatment at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri West, Mumbai. Since then, Pant has been recovering slowly and keeps his fans updated with pictures and videos on his Instagram. 

Earlier, he was spotted at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi during Delhi Capitals match against Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023.
