The BCCI president was in intensive care unit (ICU) on Thursday night following the angioplasty, which was conducted by a team of doctors, including noted cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty and Dr Ashwin Mehta.

He was hospitalised on Wednesday for the second time in a month due to his cardiac condition. The former India captain had suffered a mild heart attack earlier this month and was diagnosed with Triple Vessel Disease.

He had undergone an angioplasty procedure during which a stent was inserted into one of the blocked arteries.

Ganguly is an important man in Indian cricket. The former Indian captain is currently at the helm of affairs at the BCCI. As a cricketer, Ganguly is credited for building a team for the future. He also led India to the final of the 2003 World Cup in South Africa and to victory in the Natwest Trophy.

It was Ganguly who is also credited for bringing day-night and pink-ball Test in India. In India, the first day-night pink-ball Test took place in Kolkata – the birthplace of the current BCCI supremo.
