Kolkata: The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India has decided to bear the entire expenses for the treatment of leading cricket star, Sourav Ganguly, who is now recovering in a private city nursing home after a double surgery for an abcess on his left thigh. 'We will foot all the bills. We want that he should get the best possible treatment. Money should and will not be a problem,' BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya told reporters in Kolkata on Tuesday. 'We are also prepared to bear all the expenses if Ganguly needs to call in another doctor', Dalmiya who visited Ganguly last evening said.

Ganguly, who went under the surgeon's scalpel twice in five days last week, has already been ruled out for the first two matches of the triangular limited over series beginning on October 23. India will play with New Zealand in the tournament opener in Chennai before taking on Australia in Gwalior on October 26. Ganguly, who had earlier missed the second Test against New Zealand in Mohali due to the same problem, has been advised by the doctors to stay put in the nursing home at least till Saturday as he needed daily dressing.
