Indian cricket council chief Sourav Ganguly is likely to be fired Sunday morning because his health status is stable, a senior official at the private hospital, where he has been admitted, said. Ganguly underwent another round of angioplasty on Thursday and two more stents were implanted to remove the 48-year-old cricket legend’s clogged coronary arteries.


“Mr. Ganguly is fine and stable. He may be discharged this morning after the doctors checked him and went through the medical reports. All of his vital signs are satisfactory,” the official told PTI.

“We can release him around 11am,” he added.

The president of the BCCI was in the intensive care unit (ICU) Thursday night after the angioplasty, which was performed by a team of doctors, including renowned cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty and Dr. Ashwin Mehta.


He was hospitalized for the second time in a month on Wednesday for his heart condition. The former Indian captain had suffered 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 into one of the blocked arteries.
