Cancer survivor Yuvraj ‘positive’ about comeback

India’s World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh on Wednesday vowed to return to cricket after recovering from a cancerous tumour, but was unable to set a timeline for his comeback. “I want to see the Team India logo on my cap again,” Yuvraj, 30, told a media conference after his return from the United States where he underwent chemotherapy treatment for a rare germ-cell tumour between his lungs. “It will be a big achievement if I can play for India again. But it won’t be easy and will take time. I can’t say when I will return to the field. “At this stage, it is more important for me to focus on my priority, and that is to get fit and stay healthy.
But I am positive that I will play cricket again.” Yuvraj, a left-handed all-rounder who was named the man of the tournament after India’s World Cup triumph in April last year, said he found it tough to watch cricket on TV during his treatment. “I tried not to watch,” he said. “It was so frustrating to sit before the TV and watch India play. It was painful to see that I was not on the field. “But my family and friends helped me overcome what has been most difficult period of my life. It was so hard to believe that I had cancer, that an athlete like me could have cancer.
