Good news for cricket fans... Indian world cup superstar and allrounder Yuvraj Singh returned home to India after completing a successful cancer treatment.  He returned home to a rousing welcome from adoring fans and was received by his mother Shabnam Singh at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, in New Delhi.

Yuvraj was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called "mediastinal seminoma" which is a germ-cell tumour located between his two lungs.  Yuvraj had three sessions of chemotherapy in Indianapolis, at the IU Simon Cancer Centre at the Indiana University Medical Centre, under Lawrence H Einhorn, who headed the treatment of cycling champion Lance Armstrong in 1996. He finished the last chemo session in mid-march, and his response it had left his medical team "fairly confident" that he would not suffer a relapse. He had spent a few days in London while recuperating from the side effects of the treatment.

Flashing a victory sign and a smile, Yuvraj walked through patiently towards a white Audi SUV, which drove him to his home from the airport.

"Yuvi- Got well soon ?. Welcome back home my brother after winning a tough battle with cancer," Sachin Tendulkar wrote on his Twitter page.  Tendulkar, who is nursing his injured finger, had met the left-handed batsman in London last month.
