Indian cricketers Suryakumar Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar visited Ujjain’s famed Mahakaleswar temple to offer prayers for the speedy recovery of their teammate Rishabh Pant. 

Pant was involved in a horrific car accident in the early hours of 30th December as his vehicle collided with a divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway. The wicketkeeper sustained cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and suffered abrasion injuries on his back. His scan reports showed his brain and spinal cord were not affected.

The players reached the temple early in the morning alongside the staff of the Indian cricket team. Suryakumar told ANI that they had prayed for the speedy recovery of Pant as his comeback is very important for the Indian team. 

“We prayed for the speedy recovery of Rishabh Pant. His comeback is very important to us. We have already won the series against New Zealand, looking forward to the final match against them,” said Suryakumar Yadav.

After undergoing surgery, Pant had taken to Twitter recently to provide an update about his health. The India wicketkeeper thanked everyone for their support and said his surgery was a success.
