New Delhi: From 27th June, when Yuvraj had just started taking baby steps towards his comeback, the southpaw has come a long way.
His tweet on Wednesday said, "Finally played my first practice game after 8 months! Got 47 of 70 balls bowled 5 overs fielded 30 overs! Not bad for a start !!"
When he had just started training, it was not at all a rosy path. In his second week of the rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy, practice and training schedules were being worked out, diet plans were being designed and waiting media contingents were being dealt with.
