Bangalore: Rehabilitating at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) here, Yuvraj Singh on Tuesday said that hitting the nets after being treated for cancer is a “big achievement” for him and he is hoping for things to get better with each passing day.
“It’s a big achievement for me hitting the nets. I felt happy, really good to be in the nets,” Yuvraj, recovering from treatment for cancer, said after a training session here.
According to Yuvraj, it was not a “bad” session for him considering the six-month layoff.
“And it was not a bad session, for the first time after about six months. I got tired after about 15 minutes but I am sure every day will be a better day,” he said.
Hoping to make a comeback to international cricket with the Twenty20 World Cup in September, Yuvraj on Monday batted for the first time after undergoing cancer treatment in the US earlier this year.
“I am right now in the second week of rehabilitation and I am feeling good. My body will slowly become stronger, I am sure,” he said.
“The target is the T20 World Cup, and hopefully, I will be able to come just before that,” reiterated Yuvraj.
