The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly has been hospitalised in Kolkata after instantly falling ailing. The former India captain felt dizzy when he was on the gymnasium and was taken to Woodlands hospital in Kolkata. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted to say that Ganguly suffered a “mild cardiac arrest” and wished him a speedy restoration. However, the hospital is but to make an official assertion. “Sad to hear that @SGanguly99 suffered a mild cardiac arrest and has been admitted to hospital,” she tweeted. “Wishing him a speedy and full recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family!” she added.
