The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has been hospitalized in Kolkata after complaining of "uneasiness". The former India captain felt dizzy when he was at the gym and was taken to Woodlands hospital in Kolkata. 

Reportedly, Ganguly complained of dizziness after a workout session at the gymnasium on Saturday morning and was rushed to the Woodlands Hospital where findings of a “mild cardiac arrest” came up. He is scheduled to undergo further tests along with angioplasty.

PTI quoted a hospital official saying, “He is stable now. We are checking whether this pain is due to some cardiac problem or not. He requires to undergo several tests.”

The state chief minister Mamata Banerjee also tweeted about the development, wishing Ganguly a “speedy recovery”.

The BCCI too tweeted wishing the former cricketer a speedy recovery.

Sourav Ganguly on Sunday had met West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankar for nearly two hours at the Raj Bhavan in Kolkata. "This was just a courtesy call," Sourav Ganguly said after emerging from talks. "Don't speculate. The governor has not seen Eden Gardens yet," he said.
