NEW DELHI (INDIA) – Former India captain and current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly has been discharged from a Kolkata hospital after he underwent angioplasty over the weekend, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) informed on Thursday.
Ganguly, was hospitalised on Saturday after he complained of chest discomfort while exercising on a tread mill at his home gym.
“I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment,” Ganguly said to his fans waiting outside the hospital.
“I am absolutely fine. Hopefully, I will be ready to fly soon.”
Ganguly’s return to activity may bring clarity into reports that the Indian cricket team, currently in Australia, might step back from playing their final test in Brisbane if they were to be forced into strict quarantine there.
Skipper Ajinkya Rahane skipped all questions about a possible Brisbane boycott on Wednesday and said such issues were for the “BCCI and the team management”.
