New Delhi: Indian cricket team’s star wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is slowly recovering from his horrific accident. Rishabh has been out of action since the accident two-and-a-half months ago and is taking step-by-day steps towards his comeback after undergoing surgery at a hospital in Mumbai. Pant’s return is bound to take a long time. In such a situation, he also needs to be encouraged continuously and who can be better than Team India’s former veteran all-rounder Yuvraj Singh for this work? Apparently understanding this, Yuvraj recently met his junior and motivated him.
Yuvraj Singh made Indian fans happy by posting a picture of himself with Rishabh Pant on the evening of Thursday 16th March. Along with this, the fans got to see the face of Rishabh Pant who narrowly survived the horrific road accident on 30th December. Yuvraj Singh met Pant to know his condition and spent a lot of time with him.
What did Yuvraj say after meeting Pant?
In the last few years, Yuvraj, who has called Rishabh Pant a player like himself and his successor in Team India, has a special relationship with the star wicketkeeper. Both have been seen laughing and joking together many times before. In such a situation, how could this meeting be complete without it and Yuvraj specifically mentioned this thing in his post. After meeting Pant, Yuvraj wrote in his post,
Small steps have started. This champion (Pant) is ready to rise again soon. It was great meeting him and having a good laugh. What a wonderful guy, always positive and funny. Lots of strength to you Rishabh.
Yuvraj had faced death
While battling cancer himself 12 years ago, Yuvraj Singh made India the world champion. Then after the treatment of cancer, Yuvraj made a strong comeback. In such a situation, he knows how difficult it is to escape from the mouth of death. Pant also faced a similar situation and in such a situation, Yuvraj’s words must have filled the Indian keeper with even more energy.
