Yuvraj eying to return for T20 World Cup

New Delhi, July 7 (ANI): All-rounder Yuvraj Singh is hopeful for his return to the international cricket with September’s Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

Singh played cricket with children here on Saturday and informed that he had started with light training.

“My target is to comeback in the T20 World Cup. It has been tough for the body and I am trying to build a new body over here. So, it is going to take a lot of time. In a month or half I will be ready and in another two months I should be back on track,” Singh said.

Yuvraj, 30, has not appeared in any form of the game since last November when he was diagnosed with lung cancer.

He underwent three sessions of chemotherapy in the United States before returning to India in April to continue his rehabilitation.

The flamboyant left-hander said that cancer diagnosis was a shock for him and his family.

“I think I had issues with my breathing and coughing during the World Cup, and it became worse when the IPL ended, so I just decided to go for a test and when I got diagnosed (with cancer) it was a shock to myself and especially to my mother,” he said. (ANI)
