Yuvraj admits comeback wasn’t an easy one

Yuvraj Singh has admitted that coming back into the game after suffering a life-threatening disease like cancer wasn’t an easy one.

Speaking to reporters after his match-winning 123 for India A against West Indies at Bangalore on Sunday, Yuvi said: "The doctors said it would take me about a year to get fully fit. My body's improved a lot. It's taken a lot of time because the body has gone through a lot. You just can't go through such a disease (cancer) and come back and say 'okay, I'm going to be a 100%."

Yuvraj added that the six-week rigorous fitness training camp in France has done him a world of good.

"I was focused on training, where I had my weaknesses, on my lung capacity, my diet, in my off-season with Zak [Zaheer Khan]. And, Tim Exeter, whom we trained with (in France), has done wonders for me and Zak in terms of getting back," Yuvi mentioned.

"It's just getting better and better with every off-season I've spent. I'm just happy with the way I hit the ball today and hopefully I can carry on this form in the coming months. I'm just happy I'm playing," the southpaw concluded.
