BCCI President Sourav Ganguly can travel to Ahmedabad on 23rd before the third Test match against England. The day-night Pink Ball Test match is to be played between India and England at the new Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad on the 24th. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have also been invited for this test match. It is expected that Ganguly will remain in Ahmedabad from 23rd to 25th. A month and a half ago, Ganguly was hospitalized due to a ‘mild’ heart attack. After the treatment, he will participate in a public event for the first time.
This former captain of the Indian team had earlier talked about organizing a pink ball test in every home series. He said, “A pink ball test is necessary in every home series. Every generation goes through a phase of change. Pink ball test is one of the main changes in Test cricket in this period. Its specialty is that It can keep Test cricket alive. I think everyone will get a great view at the new stadium in Ahmedabad. ” Significantly, all the tickets available for this match have been sold.
Significantly, Ganguly was admitted to the Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata after suffering a ‘mild’ heart attack in January. A blockage was found in three arteries of his heart. After this, stents were placed after angioplasty. Ganguly is now fully healthy and ready to take up his responsibility once again.
