Visakhapatnam: “It’s going to be like his debut... I wasn’t there in Nairobi (October 2000), but I’ve come here,” Yuvraj Singh’s mother, Shabnam, told The Telegraph.
Speaking moments after checking-in at her hotel, on Friday evening, Shabnam added: “Of course, it feels very nice... It’s so emotional too.”
Shabnam, one may add, is the Team Yuvraj captain.
Also on the same flight was Gurmeet Sapal, who is “directing and shooting” Zindagi Abhi Baaki Hai, the documentary featuring Yuvraj’s inspirational fight against cancer and his return to international cricket.
The documentary, which will be three hours long, is scheduled to be aired in November.
Meanwhile, according to an associate of Yuvraj, the family has “booked” a box at the Dr YSR Stadium to accommodate “close friends” who’re expected for Saturday’s T20 International against New Zealand.
They are all going to wear YouWeCan badges.
One hopes the weather won’t be a dampener, though. The past couple of days have seen massive rain, at different times, so it’s a fingers crossed scenario.
The forecast, in any case, isn’t good.
