MOHALI: Indian cricketer S Sreesanth was admitted in a city hospital and has been tested positive for swine flu.
Director of a local hospital in Mohali told reporters that the Kerala cricketer, who has been ruled out of Saturday’s Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka, is doing better now.
“Sreesanth was brought here last night with cough, sore throat and fever. Various tests have been done and he is doing fine,” Banerjee said.
He said samples have been taken for swine flu tests as well and the results are awaited.
With the mercury going down, Chandigarh in the past 10 days has seen a sharp increase in number of swine flu cases and has already registered 10 deaths.
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni earlier said Sreesanth would miss Saturday’s match because of “viral infection”.
