The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly has currently went into home quarantine after his elder brother Snehasish Ganguly, who is the joint secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), has recently tested positive for COVID-19.
The 52-year-old present CAB joint-secretary Snehasish Ganguly was also a Bengal player. According to the recent PTI report, while Snehasish was suffering from fever for last few days, he has been now admitted to Belle Vue Hospital after his COVID-19 report came positive.
A CAB official told PTI, “He was suffering from fever for the last few days and his test report came positive today. He’s been admitted to Belle Vue Hospital.”
According to Indian Express report, Snehasish was having the fever of 99-100 degree Fahrenheit for the last two-three days.
Sourav Ganguly will have to be in home quarantine for a stipulated period
After Snehasish’s latest COVID-19 report, his family members, including younger brother Sourav Ganguly, are now following the home quarantine rules.
A source close to the BCCI President told PTI, “The reports arrived late in the evening. As per health protocols, even Sourav will have to be in home quarantine for a stipulated period.”
In last month, the news were spreading that Snehasish Ganguly and his wife tested positive for COVID-19. However, later, the CAB joint secretary rubbished that news as he claimed that he was perfectly all right.
From 1986/97 to 1996/97, Snehasish played 59 first-class matches and 18 List A games where the left-handed batsman scored 2534 runs (average 39.59) and 275 runs (average 18.33) respectively. While he hit six centuries and 11 half-centuries in first-class career, he also scored one half-century in List A career.
