Although batting on a sticky wicket off the field for quite some time, Yuvraj Singh, the Indian glitzy all-rounder is now convalescing from a lung tumor surgery. Yuvraj Singh, at 29 years of age faced a traumatic situation when he was at the IPL since then he was not able to come out from the troubled waters, one injury after the other, and then ultimately it was disclosed that he is facing a non-malignant lung tumor.
He is currently not playing against Australia in the home series and will not be in action in the ODI series against the West Indies. After a successful operation, he is feeling better now as he believes God has given him a new life. He is all geared up with a new spirit to dazzle the cricket ground in 2012.
