Sourav Ganguly’s brother Snehasish Ganguly also addressed the media and in the process updated them about his brother’s health.
“Sourav Ganguly is stable. Senior doctors are looking after him. We will let you know once we get further updates,” said Snehasish on Saturday.
Sourav Ganguly is currently the president of the BCCI where he had assumed office last October as he took over from the previous president C.K Khanna. Though his term shouldn’t have been over by July 2020, since the supreme court hasn’t conveyed any decision on the same, he’s still continuing in the role.
One of Sourav Ganguly’s most successful events under his leadership was the recently concluded IPL in the UAE where the board managed to earn close to 4000 crore rupees by organizing the IPL in a bio-secure bubble.
