New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh, who has been recovering well after his cancer treatment, is eyeing to play in some of the pre-season tournaments like Moin-Ud Dowla Gold Cup and Buchi Babu Trophy later this year before making a comeback into first-class cricket.
"Yuvi's scan report shows that he is nearing complete recovery. For the first two years, the blood tests and scan needs to be done every three months. In the next three years, it will be every five months. He is a little bit weak but his rehab programme at the NCA is going pretty well," one of Yuvi's close friends said on conditions of anonymity.
Asked about his return to competitive cricket, the source said, "It's difficult to pinpoint a particular date. He might just like to check himself out by playing in one of the Hot Weather tournaments in and around Delhi. But he will definitely play in the Ranji preparatory tournaments down south like the Buchi Babu Trophy or Moin-Ud Dowla Gold Cup."
