Wednesday 15 February 2012

India's cancer-stricken batting star has revealed om his Twitter account that he is well on course to recovery, as the cancerous tumour in the space between his lungs is receding.

"The tumour is almost out of the system after reading my today's scan! Second cycle has got started," Yuvraj tweeted.

The World Cup star for India, who is undergoing chemotherapy in the United States of America for a rare germ cell cancer, said that the message received from US cycling legend lance Armstrong just a couple of days ago was inspiring, "Message from @lancearmstrong makes me feel better! Thank you lance means a lot hope we can meet," tweeted Yuvraj, from the Cancer Research Institute in Boston where he is receiving treatment.

The formidable middle order left-hander had also tweeted a week back that he was eager to don the Indian colours and make a strong comeback.
