Indian cricket commissioner Sourav Ganguly’s health status is stable and he slept well on Thursday evening, while doctors plan to conduct necessary medical examinations on Friday, a senior official from the hospital where he has been admitted. The former captain of India underwent another angioplasty the previous day. Two more stents were implanted to clear his obstructed coronary arteries.


“Sourav Ganguly’s health is stable. He slept well at night. All his vital signs are normal. The doctors will perform the necessary tests on him in the morning.

“Senior doctors will perform a thorough checkup, after which a decision will be made to move him to another unit,” the hospital official told PTI.

The 48-year-old cricket icon was in the ICU on Thursday night after the angioplasty performed by a team of doctors, including noted cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty and Dr Ashwin Mehta.


His oxygen support has also been removed, the official said. Ganguly was hospitalized for the second time in a month on Wednesday because of 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.
