Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly is recovering well and likely to be discharged from the Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday after the former India captain complained of chest pain on Saturday.

Dr. Devi Shetty is likely to visit Ganguly on Tuesday and sit for another meeting for the next course of treatment before the final call on discharging him will be taken. The medical board of 9 members met and discussed the further treatment plan with family members.

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

"The discussion was also on the two other coronary blockages need to be treated by angioplasty in this admission vis a vis at an immediate later stage," Basu said.

"The consensus of the board was that deferring the angioplasty isdeemed to be a safer option and Mr. Ganguly is stable without any chest pain and is on very optimal medical management. The family members (of Ganguly) were also present during the board meeting and were explained about the disease process and further therapeutic plan," Basu said.

“Treating doctors will be keeping a constant vigil on his health situation and taking appropriate measures daily at home once discharged,” said Basu.
