I’ve known you for 40 years now … and it goes beyond family,” Ganguly wrote on Instagram. Following his discharge, the former Indian skipper also thanked Woodlands Hospital’s medical team for caring for him and performing the necessary procedures. “I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. Everything is going well. Hopefully I’ll be ready to fly soon,” Ganguly told reporters.
