Former Indian captain and the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has been taken to the Apollo Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday. As per the reports, the 48-year-old was rushed to the hospital after he felt some chest pain on Tuesday night. And, further reports suggested that he is stable now, but he will be under the doctor's observation for two days as well.

Notably, this is the second time in this month that he has been admitted in the hospital. Earlier this month, the left-handed batsman was admitted in Kolkata's Woodlands Hospital after he suffered dizziness while working out at home and later diagnosed with three blockages in his coronary arteries as well.

Sourav Ganguly was admitted after he was suffering a mild heart attack and later he also underwent angioplasty. He stayed a few days in the hospital after his surgery and was released from the hospital on January 7.

The hospital in a statement had said, "Coronary Angiography was done at 3 p.m. --- Triple vessel disease PTCA (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty) and stenting to RCA or right coronary artery done through radial route".

However, while speaking to reporters outside the hospital, the former captain assured everyone and confirmed that he has recovered well and also expressed his gratitude towards the medical staff who took good care of him.

"I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine," BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had told.

However, it is also understood that, two more stents on Ganguly's coronary arteries, which were supposed to be inserted by another surgery in a few weeks from the date of his previous discharge from hospital, likely to be done now, although Hospital sources revealed that there is nothing seriously wrong with him.
