Sourav Ganguly 'clinically fit' but will be discharged from hospital tomorrow
Kolkata/IBNS: Indian cricket board president Sourav Ganguly, who was admitted to hospital after suffering a mild cardiac arrest, will be discharged on Thursday.
Woodlands Hospital CEO Dr. Rupali Basu said the former Indian cricket captain is "clinically fit" but it was his own decision to stay at the medical facility for a day more.
Reportedly, Ganguly's wife Dona Ganguly had reached the hospital on Wednesday morning but the former skipper changed his mind and expressed his desire to return a day later.
Ganguly, who heads the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), was admitted to the south Kolkata hospital 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.
