Former India skipper and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly admitted to hospital after suffering chest pain on Saturday morning and will need to get angioplasty done by evening, according to the reports. He is now stable.
Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries after which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage, Dr Mondal, whose team performed the procedure at Woodlands Hospital, was quoted by the PTI as saying. The hospital statement also added that Mr. Ganguly's family had a history of ischemic heart disease. He was moved to Kolkata's Woodlands Hospital at around 1 pm.
One of India's most successful captains, 48-year-old Ganguly, who hails from the state of West Bengal, took over as the BCCI president in 2019.
