President Sourav Ganguly of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) went on Wednesday to examine his cardiac condition and his vital signs are stable, according to the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital medical bulletin. “Sourav Ganguly, 48 years old, has come for a checkup of his heart condition. There has been no change in his parameters since his last hospitalization and his vital signs are stable,” the bulletin said.


Ganguly went to Apollo Hospital for weeks on Wednesday after a successful angioplasty. Sources close to the former India skipper had said nothing was wrong and it is a routine visit.

“There is no complication, it is a routine visit,” the source told ANI.

On January 2, the BCCI president was admitted to Woodlands Hospital after complaining of chest pain. He spent about five days in the hospital before finally being discharged on January 7.

After his discharge, the former Indian skipper had thanked Woodlands Hospital’s medical team for caring for him and performing the necessary procedures.

“I would like to thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. Everything is going well. Hopefully I will be ready to fly soon,” Ganguly had told reporters.


On January 6, Dr. Rupali Basu, MD, and CEO of Woodlands Hospital said the former captain would be monitored daily at home after his discharge. The 48-year-old would be ready for the next procedure or medical intervention in about 2-3 weeks, Dr. Basu explained while informing reporters about the health of the former Indian captain.

Cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty had also met with the medical team of nine doctors present in Ganguly, and then the hospital decided to take further action. Dr. Shetty said Ganguly’s heart was as strong as it was when the former India skipper was 20 years old.
