Sourav Ganguly, the head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has tested positive for COVID-19. Ganguly's COVID test results arrived late Monday night (December 27), and the former India skipper has been in seclusion since then.

Ganguly was admitted to Woodlands Hospital in January of this year after experiencing chest discomfort, heaviness in the head, vomiting, and a spell of dizziness when exercising at home. After a small heart attack, the 48-year-old former India southpaw had angioplasty, but he tested negative for COVID-19 at the time.

"Ganguly is admitted to hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 but currently asymptomatic," BCCI sources told Zee News English on Tuesday (December 28).

Ganguly has received two vaccinations and has travelled widely, participating in all professional activities. After his RT-PCR test came back positive late Monday night, the 49-year-old was brought to the hospital as a precaution.

"He was taken to Woodlands Nursing Home last night. He has been given medication and is currently stable," a BCCI source, who is keeping track of Ganguly's health, told news agency PTI.

Ganguly was rushed to the hospital twice earlier this year for cardiac concerns and underwent emergency angioplasty. Snehasish Ganguly, his older brother, had tested positive for COVID earlier this year.
