The cricket fraternity can finally heave a sigh of relief as after spending six days in hospital, former Indian captain and current president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly returned to his home and is doing well. The veteran was admitted to Woodlands Multispeciality Hospital in Kolkata on Saturday after he had complained of chest pain and dizziness while exercising in the gym.
