Faster Sreesanth suffering from Swine Flu

Opening fast bowler S Sreesanth was found to be suffering from swine flu, raising concerns about the health of both the Indian and Sri Lankan cricket teams with whom he travelled here from Nagpur for the 2nd T20 match.

S Sreesanth was admitted to hospital yesterday and late tonight it was confirmed after tests that he is suffering from Swine Flu.

Apart from Sreesanth, Indian cricket team manager Mayank Sekhar was also admitted to the hospital after developing flu-like symptoms last night.

"The manager has been admitted to the hospital only as a defensive measure after he developed cough and cold," Walia said.

Both the teams travelled to Mohali yesterday by a chartered flight from Nagpur where they played their 1st T20 match. S Sreesanth, who missed that match apparently due to a stomach upset, was on the flight.

No member of the Indian or Sri Lankan teams has so far revealed any symptoms of swine flu but all the players would be subjected to a medical check-up tomorrow morning, said Walia.

Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni coughed a few times while addressing a press conference here previous in the day but sources said that there was nothing to point so far that he was having flu. Besides Sreesanth and Dhoni, other members of the Indian team who travelled here are Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Yusuf Pathan, R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Ashok Dinda, Sudeep Tyagi and Pragyan Ojha.
