Ravichandran Ashwin shares an interesting story of Nasser Hussain’s birth place to him AFP

It was quite an emotional moment for former England captain Nasser Hussain when he made his way to the middle at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, Chennai. For Hussain, the reason behind getting emotional was very simple. It is the same city where he was born in 1968, and since his family shifted to England later on, Hussain went on to represent England in international cricket. Hussain shares a special bond with Chennai as he spent around 5-6 years of his childhood before shifting to England. Hussain has also scored few tons at this ground as a Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) league cricketer in the mid 1980s.

On this nostalgic moment, Hussain could not hide his emotions and shared an interesting story of the relation between the hospital where he was born and the ground. I’m very pleased to be back at the place of my birth. I think I was born in a hospital just over the other side of the stadium. Actually, I didn’t realise that. It was Ashwin who told me about that the other day when I saw him, Hussain told Times of India. Besides getting emotional on coming back to his birth town, Hussain also expressed his disappointment over the affects of Cyclone Vardah and praised the people of Chennai for the “magnificent” rescue work. It’s obviously been difficult to see the devastating damage from the cyclone over the last couple of days,” Hussain said, “But the community spirit from the people of Chennai, the way they have been trying to clear up the trees on the road has been absolutely magnificent.”

Despite being settled in England, Hussain is also a member of the Madras Cricket Club and wants to enjoy at the club till next few days and have a conversation filled with memories of old times with his father (Joe). I’m busy with work. I fly out the night after the game. I have not really planned to go out anywhere. It’s a shame that I have not got more time to go around and visit places in Chennai. But I will pop over to the MCC, sit down and remember when my dad used to be there having a drink,” Hussain added.
