- 48-year-old complained of chest pain after gym session
- ‘I wish and pray for speedy recovery,’ says BCCI’s Jay Shah
The former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who also heads the country’s cricket board (BCCI), was admitted to a hospital in Kolkata on Saturday after complaining of chest pain.
One of India’s most successful captains, 48-year-old Ganguly, who hails from the state of West Bengal, took over as the BCCI president in 2019. His transition from a player to top administrator was seen as a natural progression for a former captain who helped India emerge from a damaging match-fixing scandal in 2000.
