“Dalmiya is undergoing a heart surgery currently due to a blockage,” a senior CAB official present at the hospital told PTI.

Dalmiya, 75, who became the BCCI president for a second stint in March this year, hasn’t been keeping well of late. He has also not been going to the Cricket Association of Bengal regularly and was keeping away from the BCCI meetings except for the very important ones.

With his movement restricted, he couldn’t attend the IPL governing council meeting in Delhi in July which was held in the wake of the Lodha committee verdict. He, however, attended the BCCI working committee meeting in Kolkata last month.
