BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has undergone angioplasty after suffering a heart attack on Saturday (January 2).
The procedure was performed at the Woodlands hospital in Kolkata and the doctor has confirmed that the former India skipper is currently stable.
Regarded as one of India’s finest captains, Ganguly’s health news has been the talk of the town for the past 48 hours and personalities from different quarters are wishing him a speedy recovery on social media platforms.
According to a PTI report, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday (January 3) spoke to Ganguly and enquired about his health.
Official sources said Modi also spoke to the BCCI chief’s wife Dona Ganguly.
Sourav Ganguly was rushed to the hospital on Saturday afternoon as he felt dizzy and experienced chest pain while working out at the gym. He was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries after which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage.
Ganguly represented India in 113 Tests, 311 ODIs and scored over 18000 international runs with 38 centuries.
