No COVID-19 worry for Sourav Ganguly
The BCCI president has tested negative for COVID-19
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has tested negative for COVID-19 after he gave his samples as a precautionary measure. The former India captain has been in home quarantine for more than a week after his elder brother Snehasish Ganguly had tested positive for the contagious disease.
"He (Ganguly) is living with his ailing mother and family, so as a precautionary measure he took the test voluntarily and the report came negative on Friday evening," a source close to the BCCI president told PTI.
The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Snehasish is recovering well and is expected to be discharged from the hospital in a couple of days. "He is doing fine and also handling his office work from the hospital through virtual meetings. We expect him to be released in a couple of days," the source added.
Snehasish's family -- wife, mother-in-law, father-in-law along with their domestic help -- had tested positive for COVID-19 on June 20 at their Mominpur residence. Since then, the elder Ganguly had shifted to their ancestral house in Behala where the BCCI President is based.
