Sourav Ganguly in hospital after suffering mild cardiac arrest, condition said to be stable

Former Indian skipper and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has been admitted at a Kolkata hospital after reportedly suffering a mild cardiac arrest on Saturday. Sources have revealed that he is stable.

According to reports, the former Indian captain will be undergoing Angioplasty soon. Sources said that Ganguly complained of chest pain and he was immediately rushed to Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata.

On Wednesday, Ganguly was present at the Eden Gardens to meet Cricket Association of Bengal president Avishek Dalmiya, as preparations are underway to host the upcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament.

Soon after news broke of Ganguly’s hospitalisation, fans and celebrities took to social media to wish the former Indian cricketing legend a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile, a fan’s photos and videos of Indian cricket players having a meal in Australia has created an unnecessary controversy. A fan tweeted photo and video of Indian cricketers Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Navdeep Saini, and Shubman Gill having food at a restaurant in Australia.

Soon after the photos and videos went viral, reports came out that BCCI was investigating the video to see whether the players broke Cricket Australia’s Covid-19 protocols. However, according to latest reports, on Saturday, the BCCI dismissed the reports terming them “as a malicious spin by a section of Australian media”. BCCI has said that players are well aware of the protocols and no breach took place.

India will be taking on Australia in the third Test match of their tour to Australia at Sydney Cricket Ground on January 7. T Natarajan has been included in the Test after Umesh Yadav suffered an injury during the Boxing Day test match at Melbourne Cricket Ground. Rohit Sharma returns to the side and has been named as vice-captain for the last two test matches.
