Sourav Ganguly Has ‘Very, Very Strong Heart’: Cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty

The renowned cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty, who had met the doctor attending Sourav Ganguly, stated that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president has no major damage in the heart. He has even said that the heart of a former Indian cricketer is as strong as that of a 20-year-old.

On Saturday, Sourav Ganguly complained of an ache in his heart and was immediately taken to the Woodlands Hospital. Currently, a team of nine doctors is monitoring him.

Ganguly is likely to be discharged today (Wednesday) and thereafter he will be monitored at home on a daily basis, said Dr. Rupali Basu MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital.

Talking to ESPNCricinfo, Dr. Shetty stated that there was nothing to worry about Ganguly’s health. He said that after getting medical help at the right time, he is recovering well.

“Sourav didn’t have any major problem. This is the problem which most Indians experience at some point in time, which is a blockage in the coronary artery,” ESPNCricinfo quoted Dr. Shetty as saying.

“Did he have heart damage? No. He had a blockage and he was getting some discomfort, but at the right time he landed in the right hospital and he had the right treatment.

Dr. Shetty has opined that Sourav Ganguly’s heart is as strong as it was when he was 20-year-old. This remark would have eased the concerns of many fans about the former Indian skipper’s health.

“His heart is today as strong as it was when Sourav was 20-years-old. I want everyone to understand that he didn’t have a major cardiac event which has damaged his heart. He has a very, very strong heart,” Dr. Shetty added.

Ganguly was hospitalised at 1 pm on January 2 with “chest discomfort, the heaviness of head, vomiting and a spell of dizziness” while performing physical exercise in the home gymnasium at around 11 am.

Australia vs India 2020-21: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant To Play Third Test Despite Allegations Of COVID-19 Breach On Them- Reports

Although the five Indian players have become the centre of discussion for the past two days because of the alleged COVID-19 protocol breach, Team India is reluctant to play three out of those players, which include Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw and Navdeep Saini.

After the video of the aforementioned player dining inside a hotel went viral, Cricket Australia stated that they will be isolating themselves from the other member of the team.

The SMH report says that the team management arranged two separate buses from the hotel to the gym so that the five players can travel while maintaining ‘social distancing’ from the rest of the squad. The report also states that Gill even returned in the same bus with his teammates to the hotel, however, the BCCI spokesman said all the necessary precautions were maintained.

Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant will be in India’s playing XI:

However, the reports claim that Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant will be in the playing XI for the third Test.

Although it has still not been confirmed that India had violated the biosecurity or not, CA has said that they are investigating the matter and will take further action accordingly.

“The BCCI and CA are investigating the matter and seeking to determine whether the outing constitutes a breach of biosecurity protocols,” the statement by CA said. In the interim, on the advice of the Australian and Indian medical teams, the aforementioned players have been placed in isolation as a precaution. This will include separating the group of players from the broader Indian and Australian squads when traveling and at the training venue,” it added.

Navdeep Singh, an Indian fan, had posted footage of players dining on social media of the group at the restaurant, claiming that he had paid the $118.69 bill for the players. He also claimed that he hugged Pant.

Meanwhile, India will travel to Sydney on January 4 to start practising for the third Test, which is scheduled to begin on January 7.

Sourav Ganguly’s Conflict Of Interest Among Top Agendas To Be Discussed In BCCI’s AGM

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) on December 24 where they will take decisions on the fate and planning of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, which is likely to be played in India even though the fight against COVID-19 is still on. Apart from IPL, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly will also be the point of discussion.

As per a TOI report, Ganguly will have to dodge several bouncers and be up against a ‘proverbial ambush’ during the meeting with the board members – who aren’t satisfied with him signing various brand deals after taking charge of the BCCI office. The former cricketer took over as the BCCI chief in October 2019.

Sourav Ganguly under criticism for endorsing several brands:

The former Indian skipper will also be scrutinized over deals he has signed with brands deemed as direct competitors of BCCI and IPL sponsors. Currently, Ganguly is the brand ambassador of My 11 Circle which is the arch-rival of Dream 11, which was the title sponsor of IPL 2020. Apart from endorsing fantasy sports app, Sourav Ganguly has done ads for other several brands.

As far as IPL’s 14th edition is concerned, the Indian board is eager to host the upcoming edition, in 2021, in India. Recently, the board has also shown its willingness to add two more teams in order to justify the plethora of talent on offer in Indian cricket. Hence, the future of IPL 2021, whether one or two teams need to be added in the upcoming season, the fate of the next edition’s auction will hold great significance.

BCCI will also pour their attention towards the arrangement of the India-England series at home, to be held in February-March. The tour’s success will give a clear indication of whether the COVID-hit country can host the entire IPL season in 2021.

Former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla is reportedly going to be the next vice-president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). During the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on December 24 in Ahmedabad, BCCI is likely to select him while Brijesh Patel will continue as IPL chairman for a second term.

According to reports in Indian Express, the Indian cricket body won’t have formal elections this time around as they have reached a consensus on Shukla and the latter will be filing for the nomination on Thursday.

BCCI To Discuss About Adding Two More Teams In IPL’s Next Edition

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to include two more teams in the coming Indian Premier League (IPL) edition which the total number of teams will become 10 next year. In the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) on December 24, the board will discuss the expansion of the cash-rich league.

The addition of the teams will help the Indian board to make it up for the loss because of the COVID-19. But the BCCI will have to plan a lot before considering the expansion because the next edition of the IPL is only four months away.

The Ahmedabad-based Adani Group, which lost out in the bidding war during the 2011 expansion, is known to have expressed interest again, with the hope of making the newly renovated Motera Stadium (which boasts of seating 110,000 spectators) their home. So have the RP Sanjiv Goenka Group, which ran the Rising Pune Supergiant franchise for two years (2016-17).

“I would be surprised if the valuation of the new franchise, whenever it comes on board, is anything less than Rs 300-400 crores per year,” said a former BCCI official, familiar with the ongoing developments.

BCCI to discuss having 10 teams in IPL’s next addition:

In the 2011 edition, 10 teams featured in the cash-rich league, but they could not survive for long. Kochi Tuskers and Pune Warriors were added to the roster after their owners agreed to pay Rs 170 crore and Rs 150 crore per year, respectively. But Kochi was terminated after their only season in 2011 and Pune lasted until 2013.

The inclusion of teams will also mean the league will take more days from the calendar for its competition which might also affect the international schedule. According to the source, BCCI would use its good term to ask for more days off for the overseas players.

“It would mean finding more days at the cost of international cricket. BCCI will try and use it’s good relations with ICC member boards,” said a BCCI source.

Meanwhile, the IPL 2020 ended in early November after Mumbai Indians lifted the title. The league had to go through several difficulties in the coronavirus halted year.

Rohit Sharma’s Fitness Test On December 11: BCCI

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has cleared the hullabaloo around Rohit Sharma’s injury soon after Team India captain Virat Kohli complained of ‘lack of clarity’ about the same. The board has stated that the opening batsman will travel to Australia only after he passes the fitness test, which will be conducted on December 11.

BCCI also cleared that Rohit Sharma had to travel back to India after the completion of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 to attend to his ailing father. But currently, he is National Cricket Academy (NCA) recovering from the hamstring.

“Rohit Sharma had to come back to Mumbai after the IPL to attend to his ailing father,” BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said in the statement. 

“His father is now recuperating well and that has allowed him to travel to the NCA and start his rehabilitation,” he added. 

Rohit Sharma likely to miss the first Test:

As Rohit’s fitness assessment test is on December 11, he is likely to miss the first Test, scheduled on December 17, because of the strict 14-days quarantine. Only if BCCI gets permission from Cricket Australia for soft quarantine for India’s batting mainstay, he could be available to play from the very first Test match of the four-match Test series.

“He (Rohit) is presently undergoing rehabilitation at the NCA. Mr Rohit Sharma’s next assessment will be conducted on December 11th following which the BCCI will have clarity on his participation in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Australia,” the statement read.

Ishant Sharma ruled out from Border-Gavaskar Trophy:

BCCI secretary Jay Shah said that the lanky pacer Ishant Sharma has recovered from his side strain but will take time to attain peak match fitness.

“Ishant has recovered completely from his side strain injury sustained during IPL 2020 in the UAE,” he said.

“While he is building up his workload in order to achieve Test match fitness, Ishant Sharma has been ruled out of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy,” Shah added.

Meanwhile, currently, India and Australia are playing the first ODI match in Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Franchise To Get IPL 2021 Auction Update In December: BCCI

After the reports surfaced that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 full auction, franchises have sought details from the board. In reply, BCCI has, reportedly, asked the franchises to wait until December.

Sourav Ganguly had informed India Today that IPL 2021 was likely to be scheduled in April-May. Soon after, it was reported that the board is also planning for a mega auction. Initially, it was understood that the board would not hold a big auction because of the reduced gap between the two IPL seasons. So, franchises have now asked for clarification on the subject.

As per reports in Times of India (TOI), the Indian board has urged the franchises to wait until December for an update on the auction for the 14th edition of the tournament.

“Few IPL franchises approached the BCCI to seek clarity on the issue. They were told that they will be getting a much clearer idea in the second half of December,” a BCCI official was quoted as saying to The Times of India (TOI).

A franchise like Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni, who are an ageing team and therefore, had a disappointing IPL 2020 season, need to revive their team combination. But Mumbai Indians, who are the current champion, have a well-settled squad and so, don’t require a big auction.

As per the source, there are a couple of teams who have expressed their wish that the board holds an auction.

Most of the teams have formed a core. They want to build on it. For the most part of this IPL, there was a consensus that a major auction was not needed. However, there are a couple of teams who have expressed their wish that the board holds an auction,” the official stated.

Meanwhile, BCCI is also working out on hosting IPL matches and also some international series in the renovated Motera stadium in Ahmedabad.

“Ahmedabad should be an important venue for the T20 World Cup. Few IPL games besides the scheduled Test match against England in February at the stadium will only help,” the official added.

BCCI is also looking to include a ninth team in the cash-rich league, but the decision is yet to be taken.

BCCI Finalise Sponsorship Deal For Team India’s Kit Ahead Of Australia Tour

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has finally got the sponsor for Team India’s kit before the Men in Blue move to Australia to play bilateral series across the deal. However, the sponsor’s name has not been disclosed, but the board will soon make an official announcement.

According to the report in Hindustan Times, a BCCI official informed that the board had signed three years deal after Nike didn’t renew their contract.

“We have signed a three-year deal. The official announcement will be made very soon,” a BCCI official said on Sunday.

Deal on the base price from BCCI:

Although BCCI has escaped the threat of going to Australia without any jersey sponsor, it is understood that the board had set a base price of R65 lakh per match, a 25 % decrease from the previous deal.

Reportedly, the board has signed the new deal above the base price, but it is comparatively short than the previous deal with Nike.

The sports shoe brand was associated with BCCI for 14 years, but they didn’t show interest to renew the contract. In September, the international sportswear companies like Adidas and Puma had expressed interest but did not submit a bid.

After the IPL 2020 end, Team India will travel via charted flight from the UAE to Australia on November 12. They will land in Sydney and follow 14-day quarantine during which they will be allowed to practice. The much-anticipated tour will begin with the ODI series followed by the T20I series and concluded with four-match Test series.

Earlier, there were speculations that Cricket Australia might change the traditional venue, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), for the Boxing Day Test because of the rise in cases in state Victoria. Still, the government has granted permission to them permission to host in the iconic ground. Moreover, CA is considering inviting spectators to that match.
