Kolkata: Former Team India captain and current BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly, who underwent angioplasty following a mild heart attack, is now stable and according to hospital officials he will be will be dischargedon Thursday.

Sourav was expected to be discharged on Wednesday, but he preferred to be at the hospital for another day, the official added.

Sources close to the cricket icon said Ganguly wanted to avoid the crowds gathered outside the hospital and his residence at Behala.

"Mr Ganguly is clinically fit. He slept well and had his meal. He wanted to stay in the hospital for one more day.

So he will go home tomorrow. It is his personal decision," Woodlands Hospital MD and CEO Dr Rupali Basu told reporters.

Hospital sources said the necessary formalities to discharge Ganguly were completed, and he and his family members were briefed about his medications after reaching home.

"He is fine and has no chest pain or any other complications. Our team of doctors monitored his health condition thoroughly this morning," a senior official of the facility said.

Ganguly was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday last week, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage.

Doctors at the private hospital had on Monday reached a consensus that 48-year-old Ganguly, who has been diagnosed with 'Triple vessel disease', would be discharged on Wednesday, and the second angioplasty, which he might have to undergo, could be performed at a "later stage".

Noted cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty, said on Tuesday that Ganguly is an "asset" to the nation, and the mild heart attack that he experienced did not cause any damage to his health.
