Ganguly said about Pant, I hope he recovers soon
India’s wicket-keeper batsman Pant met with a horrific accident on Friday after he lost control of his car while driving on NH-58. He is currently undergoing treatment at Max Dehradun for head, back, knee and ankle injuries.
Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday expressed hope that Rishabh Pant will soon recover from the injuries sustained in the car accident and make a comeback. India’s wicket-keeper batsman Pant met with a horrific accident on Friday after he lost control of his car while driving on NH-58. He is currently undergoing treatment at Max Dehradun for head, back, knee and ankle injuries.
“I wish him a speedy recovery, that’s all I can say,” Ganguly said on the sidelines of a promotional event here. You know things keep happening in life and you need to move on, so hopefully he recovers soon and gets back on track.” There is a possibility of staying away from cricket for at least six months.
The former President of the Board of Cricket in India (BCCI), who is going to become the Director of Cricket of Delhi Capitals, said that Qatar has done a remarkable job by hosting the FIFA World Cup. Ganguly said, “You know that I watch football closely and I also understand it a little bit. I may have played cricket but I understand the game very little. I think this is the best football World Cup I have seen in my life.
“Russia was great and I think there was a lot of criticism for Qatar hosting the Football World Cup but I think they took it to a different level,” he said. I think it has been a very successful World Cup.” The 50-year-old Ganguly heaped praise on French forward Kylian Mbappe, who scored four goals in the final but his team still lost.
“Mbappe is pure as gold and I think he probably hasn’t slept since the World Cup final because it’s very rare in a World Cup that you score four goals and still lose. Same with him,” he added. Ganguly said, “He won one World Cup at the age of 19 and played in the final of another World Cup at the age of 23, so the world is at his feet.”
Lionel Messi has finally won the trophy he yearned for the most and Ganguly feels it was ‘fair’ that the Argentine legend won the title in his last attempt. He said, “I think it is fair (to win the title) for Messi in his last World Cup. At the age of 35, he ended his World Cup career with a trophy which also shows how good and great you are. It took him sixteen years to win the World Cup for Argentina. And I think it was phenomenal to see the momentum that cannot be felt on TV.
