BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is stable and he will likely be released from hospital on Saturday if the results of the medical examinations to be performed on him are normal, an official from the facility where he is being treated said. “Ganguly’s health is stable. He slept well on Friday evenings and had light food in the morning,” the official told PTI.


According to the schedule, doctors will conduct a few medical examinations on the 48-year-old former Indian captain to decide if he is fit to be released from the hospital, he said.

Ganguly had undergone another angioplasty on Thursday and two more stents were implanted to remove his blocked coronary arteries.

He was hospitalized for the second time in a month on Wednesday for his heart condition.


He had had a mild heart attack earlier this month and was diagnosed with Triple Vessel Disease.

He had undergone an angioplasty procedure in which a stent was inserted to unblock a blocked artery.
