Watch: Yuvraj Singh has all praise for Pakistani people


Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh praised Pakistani people for showing love and support at the time when he was fighting with cancer.

While talking with Pakistan’s former flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi on his Youtube channel, Yuvraj recalled the moment when people from Pakistan sent him prayers and best wishes when he was under cancer treatment.

“I still remember when I was in the US for treatment and Twitter was new at that time. I posted something about my treatment and loads of Pakistani people sent their prayers for me,” he said.

The left-handed explosive batsman explains the pain and tough time he went through while dealing with the disease. “It was a tough time for me. For a cricketer, remaining away from cricket is toughest,” he said.

It must be noted here that in 2011 the 30-year-old was diagnosed with a non-malignant tumour of the lungs. He successfully beat cancer and once again represented his country in international cricket.

Yuvraj had played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs, and 58 T20Is for India. He had recently announced retirement from all forms of the game.
