Not too long ago, southpaw Yuvraj Singh was one of the cataylst in India’s World Cup triumph in 2011 and we saw him win awards after awards. A huge setback hit his career, when Yuvraj was diagnosed with cancer and many presumed his career to be over. But, after a few blips, Punjab’s ‘Prince’ has fought his way back and got what he had wished – a spot in the Indian ODI team. Expressing happiness over his recall to the Indian team, all-rounder Yuvraj Singh said that his recent performance with the India A team helped his comeback.
He adds, “I am looking forward to playing for India yet again, represent my country. It’s been hard coming back in 200 percent fitness but I worked pretty hard in the off season and hopefully coming back would make a difference. I got the opportunity to play in the India A against West Indies and proved a point.”
Yuvi along with Zaheer Khan underwent intense training at Brive La Gaillarde, France to get back into shape. The focus of the training was on building strength and endurance levels. Under the guidance of well-known high performance physical trainer, Tim Exeter, it seems Yuvraj’s rich dividence has paid off.
It’s great news for all Yuvraj Singh fans and they will be hoping that the versatile player would continue his rich vein of form that started from the Tour A games.
