BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been hospitalised again after he complained of chest pain on Wednesday morning, according to his family sources.

It is learnt that Ganguly felt uneasiness last evening and felt mild chest pain this morning after which his family members decided to take him to Apollo Hospital. As per the latest reports, his condition is stable.

According to the latest update from the hospital, the 48-year-old’s condition is stable. “There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalisation and vital parameters are stable,” read the official statement from the hospital.

Ganguly underwent angioplasty on his right coronary artery at Woodlands Hospital earlier this month after he suffered a mild heart attack. He was discharged a few days later but attending doctors advised him angioplasty on other coronary arteries as well.

According to PTI,  the Kolkata Police created a green corridor for smooth travel from his Behala residence to the hospital off the E M Bypass. Noted cardiologist Devi Shetty is set to arrive in Kolkata tomorrow after which an angiogram will be conducted on Ganguly.

Earlier this month, the former India captain had complained of chest pain while exercising at his Behala residence.

A nine-member medical team was formed and opinions were sought from renowned experts and cardiac surgeons including Devi Shetty, R K Panda, Samuel Mathew, and Aswin Mehta from India and Shamin K Sharma from New York before a stent was implanted.
