Former Indian captain and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly suffered a minor cardiac arrest a couple of days ago, which sent shockwaves across the country. Whilst rumours suggested that Ganguly underwent Angioplasty, the doctors at Woodlands Hospital decided it was safer to postpone the procedure as he does not have chest pain anymore.

It is also being said that Ganguly is expected to be discharged in a couple of days’ time, potentially on 6th January. He was being treated in the Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata and has made swift progress ever-since he was admitted on Saturday afternoon. Ganguly was admitted to the hospital after he complained of chest pain during his gym sessions on Saturday.

“The medical board came to a consensus that deferring angioplasty, for now, is a safer option as Mr. Ganguly is stable, does not have chest pain and is on optimal management. The angioplasty will take place for sure in a few days or weeks. He will be discharged most probably the day after tomorrow.

Treating doctors will keep a constant vigil on his health condition and take appropriate measures at his home after he is discharged,” Woodlands Hospital MD and CEO Dr. Rupali Basu said as quoted by NDTV.

Former BCCI president and Union Minister Anurag Thakur was in Kolkata to visit Sourav Ganguly and mentioned that Dada was smiling when he met him. Calling him a hero of Indian cricket, Anurag Thakur said that he will be back to his normal routines in a few days time and hoped for this to be a passing cloud that never recurs.

Ganguly has been at the helm of BCCI since October 2019 and oversaw a successful IPL organization in the UAE. One of Indian cricket’s most prominent, respected and adored figures, this untimely news came in as an unpleasant shocker for everyone and speedy recovery messages flooded across social media for the former Indian captain.

If things go as per plan, once Ganguly is out on Wednesday, he will be resting for some more days before taking some crucial calls on the England tour of India and the upcoming Indian Premier League.
