Yuvraj Singh - The CHAMPION is BACK

Yuvraj Singh has finally returned to International Cricket. The last 1 and 1/2 years have been very eventful for Yuvraj.Now going back to the 2011 world cup, All eyes were on India as they were playing a world cup at home. Indian team was under a lot of pressure and the man who took the challenge to make India win the world cup was Yuvraj Singh. He batted in an awesome manner, bowled magnificently and fielded like a tiger.

The whole country celebrated with the Indian Team. At that time no one knew what the future is going to show. Few months later, a news came that Yuvraj Singh is diagnosed with a Rare Germ Cell Cancer in Lungs. This was a shocking news and Yuvraj had to leave for USA for his treatment.

Every Indian Cricket fan prayed for his good health. Yuvraj himself showed a lot of courage and was very brave throughout his treatment. Chemotherapy takes a lot of toll on the body both mentally and physically. He didnot loose hope and kept his fans updated through twitter. All these years we knew Yuvraj as a player who played for India and won matches with his wonderful batting. Now we knew a new Yuvraj who can fight any situation with his strong determination. Chemotherapy went on and slowly Yuvraj started recovering.

Yuvraj Singh then returned to India after his treatment. But the battle was still half won. He was very eager and raring to go to play for India. He started doing his training in a very steady and planned way. The Champion Player was trying hard and he also played some practice matches.

The t20 world cup and 2 t20's vs NewZealand was coming and selectors selected him in the final squad. That was the happiest news for every YUVI fan. But it didnot go well with many former players as they criticised the selection panel for being emotional in selecting Yuvraj and he should not make a comeback soon But the fact was Yuvraj was selected as he was declared fully fit.

The 1st comeback match for Yuvraj was vs Newzealand and he came into the field with the Indian Jersey after almost a year. It was a dream come true for him. Yuvraj said that he felt as if he was making his debut again. He had tears in his eyes when he came to field. He also batted well in that match and almost made India win.

T20 world cup came and he performed very well with the ball. He batted well in the last game vs South Africa. We saw some shots of the past where Yuvraj was hitting the ball out of the boundary with his elegance and brilliant timing. He also got the Man of The Match Award which he dedicated to his mother and all the cancer patients.

So, guys get ready to see some more match winning innings from Yuvraj as he will get better with time. After playing no International match for a year, he showed he can still play like a champion.
