Indian cricket control board chief Sourav Ganguly's 20-year-old daughter Sana has tested positive for Covid, a week after her father was hospitalised after contracting the virus.
"Sana is recuperating at their home in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata. Thankfully, Sourav's wife Dona, has not contracted the virus," sources close to the family told UNB on Wednesday.
Sourav, affectionately called 'Dada', was hospitalised in the last week of December after testing positive for Covid. He returned home recently after having recovered.
The 49-year-old former India skipper was, in fact, admitted to Woodlands hospital on December 26 night, three days after attending the premiere of Bengali superstar Dev's latest film Tonic.
Sourav was hospitalised thrice last year.
On January 2 last year, Sourav was rushed to Woodlands after he complained of acute chest pain and dizziness while working out at a gym. Later that day, he underwent angioplasty after three tiny blockages were detected in his coronary artery.
Later that month, he had to be rushed to Apollo hospital after he complained of mild chest pain. Subsequently, he underwent another angioplasty surgery at the hospital.
Considered one of the best captains in international cricket, Sourav quit the game in 2008 but continued playing in the multi-billion-dollar cricketing tournament Indian Premier League for a few more years.
He scored more than 18,500 runs in Tests and one-day internationals. In 2020, Dada was elected as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the world's richest cricketing body.
