Former Indian captain and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly has been rushed to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus, but according to Indian media reports, he is currently in a stable condition.

"BCCI President and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been admitted to a hospital after testing positive for COVID-19," the Press Trust of India  (PTI) said, quoting BCCI sources. 

"He was taken to Woodlands Nursing Home last night. He has been given medication and is currently stable," the BCCI source, who is keeping track of Ganguly's health, told PTI.

It is important to mention that team India are currently engaged in a three-match Test series in South Africa with the Virat Kohli-led unit dominating on the first day of the First Test in Centurion, as KL Rahul brought up a wonderful century and remained 122 not-out at stumps.

Though, no play was possible on Day 2 as it remains to be seen how things turn out on the important Day 3.
