After a horrible car accident involving Indian wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant that sent tremors among the masses, the wishes started to pour in from different parts of the world. The cricketing fraternity was left shell-shocked as they hoped and prayed for his fast recovery with many of the players expressing their best wishes.

Now, the official social media handle of the BCCI has posted a video where head coach Rahul Dravid along with Indian stand-in skipper Hardik Pandya and many other stars came out to support the swashbuckling superstar.

The video was titled "You are a fighter. Get well soon. Team India wish Rishabh Pant a speedy recovery", with coach Dravid saying,

"Hey Rishabh, hope you are doing well. Hope you get well soon. Over the last one year, I have had the privilege of seeing you play some of the greatest innings played in Indian Test cricket history.

"Whenever we have been in difficult situations, I knew you have got the character and the ability to get yourself out of very difficult situations. This is one such challenge and I know you will bounce back like you have done so many times last year. Look forward to having you back soon buddy."

Pant was said to be out of danger after spending some time in ICU. Later, he was transferred to a private ward where BCCI is keeping a proper tab on his health.

The Indian team will be playing a three-match T20I series against the Island nation before they shift to the ODI series.
