Talking to the reporters at the Woodlands hospital, Ganguly said, “I thank the doctors at the hospital for the treatment. I am absolutely fine. Hopefully, I will be ready to fly soon.” He spent five days in the hospital, however, the doctors will now be keeping a “constant vigil” on his health and appropriate measures will be taken whenever required.
