Rahane, Ashwin dedicate win to Chennai flood victims

India cricketers Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin on Monday dedicated their team’s 3-0 Test win against South Africa to the Chennai flood victims and also lauded the Indian Army for their rescue and relief work.

“I would like to dedicate this to the people in Chennai who are suffering from the floods and the Indian Army who is helping out...this one is for them,” Rahane, who received the man-of-the-match award for his twin centuries in the last Test in New Delhi, said at the post match presentation ceremony.

Ashwin, who bagged the man-of-the-series for his 31 wickets and important contributions with the bat, said he would personally like to go out and help those people suffering in Chennai.

“Happiness got the better of me, I would like to dedicate my man of the series to the ppl suffering from the Chennai floods,” Ashwin wrote on his twitter handle.

“I would also like to add that I am not going to do anything joining hands with anyone, I would go down personally and do what I like,” he further added.
