The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly spent an “uneventful night” in the hospital on Saturday, had light dinner and is “presently afebrile”, according to the latest update. He tested negative for COVID-19 and will undergo a routine ECG (electrocardiogram) test on Sunday morning.
Sourav Ganguly underwent angioplasty on Saturday after being rushed to the hospital due to chest pain. The former India captain was exercising on a tread mill at his home gym when he complained of chest pain.
