In the wake of Team India’s flamboyant wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant’s accident, an old video of Pant and aggressive opener Shikhar Dhawan playing in a funny Q&A game is going viral on social media.

In the old video, Pant is found asking Dhawan for some advise that he would want to impart to him. Shikhar says, “Gaadi aaram se chalaya kar (Drive with caution and slow)”.  

The video has reportedly gone viral and garnered more than 21.1K views, so far.

Meanwhile, wishes have been pouring in from the cricket fraternity as current and former players extended their support to Pant for his speedy recovery.

“Get well soon bhai Allah sab thik karega @RishabhPant17,” tweeted Mohammad Shami.

“Bounce back Rishabh, let’s all pray for his strong recovery. GetWellSoon,” wrote Ravichandran Ashwin.

Responding to the tragic incident, Suryakumar Yadav commented, “Praying for you, my brother. Get well soon champ.”

“Get well soon @RishabhPant17. Praying for your recovery,” wrote Virat Kohli.

Notably, the BCCI issued a statement a few hours after Pant’s accident, revealing the full nature of his injuries. According to BCCI, Pant has two cuts on his forehead, a ligament injury in his right knee, and injuries to his right wrist, ankle, and toe, as well as abrasions on his back. 

It was confirmed that Pant’s condition is stable, and he will shortly undergo an MRI to determine the next step in the Indian cricketer’s recovery.
