BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s health condition is stable and he had a good sleep on Thursday night before the doctors examined him again on Friday. He has been shifted to a private room from critical care unit.

The former India captain was visited by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the hospital on Thursday. She had earlier called him up in the morning to enquire about his health.

The former left-handed batsman was on Wednesday afternoon rushed to the private hospital on EM Bypass from his Behala residence as he felt “dizzy with slight discomfort in chest”.

A green corridor was created by the city police for his smooth travel to the hospital.

The decision to conduct an angioplasty was taken after cardiologist Devi Shetty went through reports of tests
conducted on Ganguly and consulted doctors treating him at the hospital.

Ganguly had complained of chest pain while exercising at his residence around three weeks ago. He was diagnosed with
three blocked coronary arteries then and had a stent implanted in his right coronary artery in another hospital.

A statement issued by the medical establishment on Wednesday evening stated that several tests were carried out at the emergency ward, but there was “no change in his (vital health) parameters since his last hospitalisation”.


Senior CPI(M) leader Ashok Bhattacharya also paid a visit to Ganguly at the hospital.
