Kolkata, April 23: Rahul Ghosh, the 20-year-old cricketer who was hospitalised on Tuesday after being hit on the head while fielding in a local league match is "gradually improving", his attending doctor said on Thursday.
"His condition is much stable now, he is gradually improving. The blood clot too has reduced," doctor Buddhadev Saha, who is attending Rahul, told IANS.
Rahul has been on a liquid diet and according to Saha he would soon be given solid food to eat.
"He has been in a liquid diet, let's see we might give him something to eat today," added Saha.
Rahul was given soup on Wednesday night and again on Thursday morning but he will still be kept under observation for the next few days and has to undergo a third magnetic resonance imaging scan.
Rahul was injured on the left side of his head after being hit by a ball in a Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) club league match, a day after former Bengal Under-19 team's captain Ankit Keshri died from the injuries sustained on Friday during a fielding collision in a CAB senior knockout tournament game.
CAB has extended assistance to Ghosh stating that they will bear all expenses for his treatment.
