Sourav Ganguly rushed to hospital after chest pain

There was a buzz earlier on Wednesday afternoon following reports that former cricketer Sourav Ganguly had been rushed to a city hospital in Kolkata after he complained of chest pain. Hours after that, a medical bulletin issued by the Apollo Hospital said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president had come for a “check-up of his cardiac condition”, news agency
ANI reported.

The statement further added that there is no change in the 48-year-old’s parameters since his last hospitalisation and that “his vital parameters are stable.”

Earlier in the day it was reported that the all-rounder had been rushed to the hospital following complaints of chest pain.

Dona Ganguly, his danseuse wife, was quoted by the local media that he was feeling uneasy and complained of chest pain on Tuesday night. The former Team India captain was taken to the hospital in the afternoon after telephonic consultations with the doctor, family members told the media.

The 48-year-old had spent more than a week at the city’s Woodlands Hospital where he had undergone an angioplasty earlier this month. One stent were inserted as well to clear one of the three blocked arteries.

Ganguly’s hospitalisation had seen a constant stream of high-profile visitors at the hospital including West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. A medical panel, led by renowned surgeon Dr Devi Shetty, was set up to monitor the health status of Dada, as Ganguly is popularly known.

On January 19, after India’s remarkable win in the Border-Gavaskar series, the BCCI boss had congratulated the team on social media and said that it will be remembered forever in the history of Indian cricket. The former India captain had also announced a Rs 5 cr bonus for the players and support staff.

Last week, Ganguly’s elder brother, Snehasish, underwent an angioplasty at Apollo as well. He is the Secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal, and has also played for Bengal.
