Nagpur: Indian cricket team's trainer and mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton has been tested for suspected swine flu and the results are awaited later in the day.

Upton, who arrived here this afternoon for the second one dayer against Sri Lanka scheduled on Friday, showed symptoms of swine flu and was taken to a private hospital in Rajkot, venue of the first India-Sri Lanka one dayer.

The results of his tests are expected later, sources in the Saurashtra Cricket Association told PTI.

Earlier, Indian pacer S Sreesanth had tested positive for swine flu and missed India's second Twenty20 match against the Lankans in Mohali on December 12.

The Kerala speedster was admitted in a private hospital there and was released yesterday.

The Indian think-tank spent some torrid moments in Mohali when opener Gautam Gambhir, manager Mayank Parekh and video analyst Dhananjay showed similar signs and had to be tested, the result of which proved negative, much to their relief.

It was a matter of concern since cases of swine flu were on the rise in Chandigarh which had registered 10 deaths in the previous 10 days.
