According to a report in HT Bangla, the police have already begun investigations after receiving the complaint, but it’s not yet clear if the phone has been traced. The report noted that Ganguly was using a 1.6 lakh smartphone with support for 2 5G SIM cards.

“I think my phone was stolen from home. I last saw the phone around 11:30 am on January 19. I tried to find the phone but couldn’t find it. Deeply concerned about the loss of my phone. Because the phone has multiple contact numbers and access to personal information and accounts. I request you to trace the phone or take appropriate action.” HT Bangla quoted Ganguly as saying during the report filed with the police. 

Meanwhile, a report  by India Today notes that Ganguly has expressed concern about the safety of his personal information contained in his phone. The veteran cricketer had noted that his phone contained sensitive personal data and provided access to multiple accounts.

Ganguly comments on U-19 World Cup: 

In a recent interaction with RevSportz, Ganguly had said that the U-19 World Cup that is currently underway is a loss making proposition. He said, “You can say it’s a loss-making tournament. Most World Cups not featuring the senior men’s teams are non-profit. But that’s not the reason the U-19 World Cup hasn’t been played in India. And I think it’s going to be held in India,”
