- Sourav Ganguly, the former India captain and current president of the BCCI, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to news agency PTI.
- The former India captain visited the UAE around the time of the T20 World Cup and has since participated in a number of media appearances.
According to news agency PTI, Sourav Ganguly, the former India captain and current president of the BCCI, has tested positive for Covid-19.
According to PTI, “BCCI President and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been admitted to a hospital after testing positive for Covid-19.”
Snehasish Ganguly, Ganguly’s brother, was also infected with the virus earlier this year. Ganguly, who is double-vaccinated, was taken to a city hospital on Monday night after his RT-PCR test came back positive, according to the report.
“Last night, he was taken to Woodlands Nursing Home. He has been given medication and is now in a stable condition. “PTI spoke to a BCCI source who is keeping tabs on Ganguly’s health.
This is the same hospital where Ganguly was treated earlier this year for his heart condition. After suffering a cardiac arrest, the former India captain underwent angioplasty at the same hospital.
Ganguly has been traveling extensively and interacting with the media. The former India captain visited the UAE around the time of the T20 World Cup and has since participated in a number of media appearances.
Ganguly was last seen on the show ‘Backstage with Boria,’ where he discussed India’s chances at the upcoming ICC events, as well as how he persuaded Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman to take on the roles of the head coach and NCA, respectively.
In addition, Ganguly commented on Rohit Sharma’s appointment as India’s ODI and T20I captain, as well as individual match-winners like R Ashwin and others.
Ganguly was embroiled in a debate over Virat Kohli’s removal as India’s ODI captain. While speaking to the media, the BCCI president stated that the board had requested Kohli to continue as India’s T20I captain, but the star batter refused.
However, Kohli’s version of events contrasts sharply with that of Ganguly, who revealed that his decision to step down as India’s T20I captain was well received.
This sparked outrage in the Indian media and among fans, leaving many wondering what the truth is. Former cricketers, including ex-India head coach Ravi Shastri, gave their opinions on the subject.
