Keshri hurt himself while representing East Bengal Club in a Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Division 0ne knock-out match against Bhawanipur Club when he bumped into bowler Sourabh Mondal in an attempt to take a catch. He immediately fell on the ground and lost consciousness, upon which the right-handed batsman was rushed to the private nursing home. The incident took place three days back and Ankit has been on treatment ever since the nightmarish accident took place.
