BCCI president Sourav Ganguly to be discharged from hospital today
Kolkata/IBNS: Indian cricket board president Sourav Ganguly, who was admitted to a hospital last week, will be discharged on Thursday.
Ganguly, who heads the Board of Control for Cricket in India or BCCI, was admitted to a 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.
He has received a stent in one of the blocked arteries.
Though he was scheduled to be discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, Ganguly decided to stay at the medical facility for a day more.
Rupali Basu, the CEO of Woodlands Hospital where Ganguly is admitted, declared the iconic player from West Bengal "clinically fit" on Wednesday.
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.
