BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was taken to Apollo Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday after he complained about being unwell. He was admitted at CCU 142 unit, a separate room inside Critical Care Unit, at the at Apollo Hospital. According to the latest development in Ganguly's health, the hospital has informed that the cricketer is 'absolutely stable'. Doctors will take a call on the second angioplasty by Wednesday evening, surgery mostly to be done on Thursday.

There have been minor changes in Sourav Ganguly’s Electrocardiogram (ECG) report, according to the hospital. The 48-year-old former cricketer is being monitored closely by the doctors at the Apollo Hospital in Kolkata. The doctors who are taking care of Ganguly’s health have confirmed that his situation is not alarming. He will be further monitored before they take a call, on Thursday, on the second stent which might be needed.

"Sourav Ganguly has come for a checkup of his cardiac condition. There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalization & his vital parameters are stable": statement from Apollo Hospitals, Kolkata.

The former India captain was recently in hospital after complaining of chest pain. He had undergone angioplasty and left the hospital after 5 days of continuous monitoring by the doctors. "I am fine," Sourav Ganguly had said after getting discharged.

Sourav Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage. Ganguly had also tested negative for Covid-19 on Sunday.

A 9-member medical team was formed on Monday who then decided that Ganguly doesn't need any further angioplasty for the remaining blockages in his coronary arteries.

Dr Rupali Basu MD & CEO Woodlands Hospital, had earlier told India Today that Ganguly will be able to resume his normal life in another 3-4 weeks once the remaining two blocked arteries are revascularised.

"I don't think we are considering surgery at the moment because of his young age and the advancement of angioplasty.

"But we are taking expert opinions from the best cardiologists in the country and in the world and then we will have to take a call about what to do with the 2 blocked arteries and once that is done, another 3-4 weeks of resting and he should be back to his active life and that's what we want for Dada to be back to his active life," Dr. Basu had said.
