Bangalore, Jun 5: India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh is on his way to regaining full fitness and is likely to be back on the cricket field soon.
Yuvraj, who underwent treatment in the US for a rare germ-cell cancer between his lungs, tweeted on Monday night that he was “in good condition.”
The star all-rounder is at the National Cricket Academy here in the city along with another India cricketer, Ishant Sharma.
“Good day today Got my blood report and scan report !! I'm in good condition !! I'm so happy to lead a normal healthy life time to celebrate,” tweeted Yuvraj (@YUVSTRONG12) on Monday night.
Yuvraj has already resumed batting at the NCA. Last week, he had a practice match against Ishant where he was at his usual best. The left-hander smashed seven sixes in a tennis ball match against the right-arm paceman.
“Me and ishant playd a 4 over tennis bal match He hit me for 6 sixes but I won the game by hitting the 7th six of his last bal Hard luk ishi,” Yuvraj had tweeted on June 1.
“Back to where I belong! Me and ishant working it out ! Comeback is not a challenge Its a statment!!,” he had tweeted on May 30. He had posted a picture of him working out in the NCA gym with Ishant.
Yuvraj, who won the Man-of-the-series award in 2011 World Cup, was instrumental in India taking the Cup after 28 years. He has been out of action for nearly six months now. He returned to India in April from US after cancer treatment.
Yuvraj, who missed IPL 5, was seen cheering his team Pune Warriors at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium during a match last month.
India's next international assignment is in July when they travel to Sri Lanka to play a five-match One Day International series and a Twenty20 International.
