“Grateful for small things, big things, And everything in between,” he captioned the video.
Several players from the cricket fraternity including Ravi Shastri, Michael Vaughan and Suryakumar Yadav reacted to the video as they all wished speedy recovery for the star wicketkeeper batter.
Recently, the southpaw revealed that he has gotten a new perspective in life ever since the setback he suffered, although he does miss cricket and is hoping to get back on the playing field again.
When quizzed about his recovery process, Pant said that he’s recovering well.
“I am much better now and making some good progress with my recovery. Hopefully, with the grace of God, and the support of the medical team, I will be fully fit very soon,” the wicketkeeper-batter told IANS.
Team India missed Pant’s services against Australia in the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023. The southpaw has a good record against Australia both as a wicketkeeper and as a batter, while KS Bharat who played the glovesman role in the four Tests failed to make a notable impact.
