Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been discharged from a Kolkata hospital where he underwent angioplasty over the weekend, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) said on Thursday.
Ganguly, also the BCCI president, was hospitalised on Saturday after he complained of chest discomfort while exercising on a tread mill at his home gym.
The 48-year-old “suffered a blackout” and was taken to a Kolkata hospital, where he underwent the angioplasty.
“I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment,” Ganguly, a left-handed batsman who scored 7,212 Test runs with 16 centuries, told fans waiting outside the hospital.
“I am absolutely fine. Hopefully, I will be ready to fly soon.”
Ganguly’s return to activity may offer clarity following media reports the Indian cricket team, currently in Australia, might refuse to play their final Test in Brisbane if they were to be forced into strict quarantine there.
Skipper Ajinkya Rahane sidestepped all questions about a potential Brisbane boycott on Wednesday, saying such issues were for the “BCCI and the team management”.
