New Delhi: Middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh, who skipped the ongoing West Indies series due to a non-malignant lung tumour, would be fit to play competitive cricket in three weeks time, his mother said on Monday.
"The world will see a new Yuvraj on and off the field when he returns to cricket in 2-3 weeks. Yuvraj's way of looking at life has changed. He has realised what he should do and what he should not. He was always a fighter but has become stronger and more brave. He has learnt so much in this time," Yuvraj's mother Shabnam Singh said.
Revealing the pain Yuvraj has been going through in the last six months due to a golf ball-sized tumour that was detected in his chest, Shabnam said, "Only he knows what he has gone through, how he has suffered. He knew it could have been so dangerous but he never shared his pain. It will take time to heal. There is no option but to face it."
