New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh, the India batsman who is recovering from a non-malignant lung tumour, is targetting a comeback during the limited-overs matches in Australia in February 2012. Yuvraj said he had resumed training and would be able to start "practising like normal" after a week.
"I will be ready for the one-dayers in Australia," Yuvraj told a national daily. "I just can't wait to have that India logo on my shirt again. I want to wear that India cap again."
It has been a year of highs and lows for Yuvraj. He was the Player of the Tournament during India's 2011 World Cup victory and that performance raised hopes of a Test comeback. An injury kept him out of the tour of the West Indies, though, and his series in England was cut short by a finger injury sustained during the Nottingham Test. Yuvraj was then left out of the Test squad for the final match of the home series against West Indies in November. He asked the BCCI to not consider him for selection for the home ODIs against West Indies because he wanted time to regain fitness.
