Sourav Ganguly, the current BCCI president and the former India captain, was admitted to a private hospital in South Kolkata after he fell ill on January 2.
According to hospital sources, the 48-year-old felt dizzy while exercising in his personal gymnasium in the morning. Soon after, he was shifted to the nearest private hospital.
“He was not feeling well last night. However, he decided to continue his morning routine on Saturday and suddenly felt dizzy. The preliminary doctors are trying to identify the cause of this sudden blackout… it might be because of a cardiac problem or any other problem,” the hospital said, according to newspaper reports.
The hospital has already formed a board of specialised doctors and a cardiology specialist from SSKM Hospital has also been called for Ganguly’s treatment.
In July 2020, Ganguly had gone into home quarantine after his elder brother and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) joint secretary Snehasish Ganguly had tested positive for COVID-19. In November last year, he had revealed that he had undergone as many as 22 COVID-19 tests while trying to navigate his professional commitments amid the raging pandemic.
