Kolkata: Indian cricket board chief Sourav Gagnuly has been admitted to a city hospital in south Kolkata after dizziness and chest pain, family sources said on Saturday.
They said Board of Control for Cricket in India president Sourav Ganguly was rushed to Woodlands Hospital on Saturday morning after falling ill while working out in the gym at his south Kolkata residence.
Journo and sports commentator Boria Majumdar, who is also close to the former Indian captain, said Ganguly had a heart issue and is in Woodlands Hospital.
In a Twitter post Boria Majumdar said : “Ganguly is stable and will need a procedure to confirm hospital sources. Should be out of the woods in the next few hours. I wish him a speedy recovery.”
Sources said the former skipper might need an angioplasty.
“He felt dizzy when he was in the gym and he went to Woodlands to get the Tests done. That’s when it came to light that there was a cardiac issue and the hospital has now created a 3 member board with Dr. Saroj Mondal, who will perform the procedure. @SGanguly99 get well soon,” Boria tweeted.
