Mumbai: Dave Callaghan, the former South Africa all-rounder, who overcame testicular cancer to play international cricket in the 1990s and early 2000, has some advice for cancer-stricken Yuvraj Singh: Set yourself a goal.
While Port Elizabeth-based Callaghan conceded that survival would be uppermost on India's 2011 World Cup star's mind, the 47-year-old South African said that Yuvraj must soon set a time frame for his return to cricket.
"Yuvraj will do well to tell himself, 'by the end of my treatment, I would like to play... for example... next year's IPL (Indian Premier League).' A target to work towards is important," said Callaghan. "I told myself (in 1991) that at the end of my treatment which was four to six months, I would like to play one first-class match again."
