Chennai, Sep 12: Yuvraj Singh, who played a vital role in India's World Cup 2011 triumph, made a comeback to the national side atfer batlling cancer, revealed that he had tears in his eyes while he was on the field during the second T20 between India and New Zealand at M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday.
The 30 year old, who was out of action since the 2011 World Cup final, made a comeback in the second T20 as the first T20 between the two countries was washed out as it rained heavily at Vizag.
On his comeback, Yuvraj made a valiant 34 off 26 balls, which included a boundary and two sixes. He bowled two overs on Tuesday, conceded 14 runs and took a catch while fielding, in total an all-round performance from a Cancer-fighter, which also marked his comeback with a bang.
This indeed made him feel elated, while his eyes were filled with tears, when he was fielding at the start of the innings.
"I am happy, extremely happy. There were a few tears when I was fielding at the start of the first over. Thankfully, the camera did not catch it," he said after the match.
Yuvraj was dropped on 9, by Brendon McCullum off Milne's delivery in the 12th over, but went on to play a wonderful knock as he guided India close to the target.
Yuvraj overwhelmed with the support he received from the fans at Chepauk, as they cheered for him throughout, from the minute he stepped into the ground until he was dismissed, as the stylish left-hander said he was very happy having made a comeback and was extremely pleased to have got fans' support throughout.
"It's been a very emotional journey for me, my family. So I am happy that I am back on the field again."
