It wouldn’t have been an ideal situation for India’s leading spinner R Ashwin when he came out to bat in the 73rd over of the innings on Thursday. First the scoreboard read a disappointing 198/7, second he was not able to reach his family in flood-hit Chennai.

The moment he came out to bat, his wife Prithi shot a Tweet and prayed that the offie keeps his strength in the middle.

In another Tweet, Prithi asked the rescue teams to check “RAMAKRISHNAPURAM 1st Street”, possibly the area where Ashwin’s parents were. After a wait of over 24 hours, there was some good news for the Ashwin family as contact was established. Prithi was happy to share the news, and was all praise for messaging app Whatsapp.

Ashwin, who remained unbeaten at the end of day’s play, didn’t say anything about communication with his parents but was not pleased with the price at which milk was sold in the state.
