Indian pacer S Sreesanth has been admitted in a private hospital in Mohali with swine flu symptoms but the doctors on Friday assured that the cricketer is doing well.

Director of Fortis Hospital, Mohali, Dr A R Banerjee told PTI that Sreesanth, who has been ruled out of tomorrow's Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka, wad admitted last night.

"Sreesanth was brought here last night with cough, sore throat and fever. Various tests have been done and he is doing fine," Banerjee said.

"Samples have been taken for swine flu tests as well and we are waiting for the results," he added.

With the mercury dipping, 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 tomorrow's match because of "viral infection".

"Sreesanth has not recovered from viral infection," Dhoni told reporters.
