The results of India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant's MRI of the brain and spine are normal. He has also undergone plastic surgery to manage his facial injuries, lacerated wounds and abrasions suffered in a serious car accident near Roorkee, Uttarakhand, on Friday morning.
MRI scans of his ankle and knee have been postponed till tomorrow because of pain and swelling.
The doctors at Max Hospital in Dehradun have also given him "above knee splintage ... for suspected right knee ligament injury, and suspected right ankle ligament injury". The medical bulletin released by the hospital on Friday evening also said Pant is "stable, conscious and oriented".
The bulletin noted that "prima facie, he had sustained multiple abrasions on right-hand forearm and leg, and lacerated wounds over forehead and near eyebrow, and multiple graze abrasions on the back".
The accident took place in the early hours on Friday, when Pant was driving to Roorkee. His car, which was severely damaged in the accident, is reported to have hit the divider on the road and subsequently caught fire. Pant was initially taken to a local hospital - Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre - where he was treated for impact injuries before being moved to Max Hospital in Dehradun. He had reached the hospital at 6am.
Pant, 25, was not part of the India squads for the T20I and ODI home series against Sri Lanka beginning on January 3. He was due to head to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for strength and conditioning before the Test series against Australia in February.
He most recently played a match-winning innings of 93 in the second Test against Bangladesh in Mirpur, which helped India clinch the series 2-0.
