Yuvraj Singh - I am absolutely fine, will be back soon....

Flamboyant Indian batting allrounder and World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh is currently recuperating from a "non-malignant tumour" in his left lung.

Get well soon Yuvi!!!

The 29-year-old Indian left-handed batsman withdrew from the upcoming ODI series against the West Indies after revealing that he is being treated for a tumour in his left lung.  His mother Shabnam Singh made the revelation in a formal statement on Saturday.

According to a statement released by his mother, Shabnam Singh, Yuvi had been troubled by bouts of coughing and vomitting during the 2011 World Cup but had ignored the problem during the tournament, "assuming it was due to stress."

When the problem persisted after the World Cup, Yuvraj sought medical advice and tests revealed "a golf-ball sized" growth on his left lung, the statement said. Initial reports had suggested that Yuvraj "had what in medical terms is called an abnormal tumor called lymphoma. The danger was, we were told, that it could be malignant."

Yuvraj tweeted that he would be returning sooner rather than later.

"Overwhelmed with ur love n support. I am absolutely fine, just need to get match fitness and training will be back soon,"  Yuvi tweeted.

Yuvraj's mother also said that his entire focus now is to re-gain his full fitness. He is already preparing himself to play the one-day series in Australia. He doesn't want to rush things, he wants to be hundred percent fit before resuming his cricket for India.

We are all glad that this was not a serious issue... Lets wish Yuvraj Singh a speedy recovery 

Here are some more pictures of this handsome cricketer Yuvraj Singh...
