Pant is currently rehabilitating after undergoing major knee surgery that was required due to a terrible accident the cricketer was involved in last December. The Mercedes-AMG GLE43 Coupe he was driving crashed into a road divider near Rourkee and caught fire. Pant was able to escape through the shattered windshield of his car. But he suffered multiple injuries: at the time, he reportedly had two cuts on his forehead and a torn ligament in his right knee. He also injured his right wrist, ankle, toe and suffered abrasions on his back, doctors said at the time.
