“It’s a complete disaster and we are doing on what we can. They have been working in various groups and their day starts at 8 am and ends at 6 pm. They are collecting food medicines, clothes, blankets and other necessary items and distributing those among the affected people. It’s a great gesture and I am sure they will inspire others as well to do the same,” said Dr RN Baba, a senior Tamil Nadu Cricket Association official and father of the twin brothers.

Dr. Baba and his gynecologist wife Revathy, were seen collecting medicines and sharing it on to the players, so that it can be distributed among the people affected . “Today they worked at the RK Salai are and other parts of TTK Road,” Dr Baba said, adding, “Water-borne diseases will start spreading now as the water recedes.
