Youths waiting outside the hospital where Ganguly is resting chanted his name and shouted. 

Shikhar Dhawan and other current members of the Indian cricket team sent messages of support on social media.

Ganguly, a left-handed opener, retired from Test cricket in 2008, having accumulated 7,212 runs including 16 centuries - the first of which he made at Lord's on his debut.

He also scored 11,363 runs in 311 one-day internationals.
