Ravichandran Ashwin was in Chennai to inaugurate a hospital meant for sportspersons from all over India.

The off-spinner is not part of the Indian team which is currently playing a five-match ODI series in Zimbabwe. A relatively inexperienced Indian team has already taken a 3-0 series elad with two matches to go.

Ashwin said the hospital is a good initiative, especially for all the sportsmen and sportswomen in the country. He said the only other such hospital is run by Dr Anant Joshi. Ashwin said other such hospitals must be initiated.
