Kolkata/IBNS: Ailing Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly will be discharged from the hospital on Wednesday.

Ganguly was admitted to the Woodlands Hospital in south Kolkata on Saturday after he had fainted while exercising on a treadmill in the gym. Later it was found, he had suffered a mild cardiac arrest.

The former Indian cricket captain underwent Angioplasty on the same day and doctors stated he had three blockages in the heart.

Renowned cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty, who held a discussion with the medical board, warded off any fear regarding Ganguly's lifestyle.

"Sourav is as strong as he was 20 years ago... He can participate in a marathon, fly a plane or play cricket," Dr. Shetty said on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had reportedly called Ganguly inquiring about his health while West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her ministers paid visits to the hospital on Saturday itself.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli wished speedy recovery of Ganguly.
