Cricket T20: Yuvraj Singh Plays For India Tomorrow Against New Zealand!



The high moment every cricket lover has been waiting for is tomorrow evening 8pm by Indian standard time when the first of the two Twenty20 cricket matches between India and New Zealand will be played in Visakhapatanam, India. The highlight is Yuvraj Singh playing in it after fighting bravely and coming out successfully of a rare germ cell cancer. He played his last international cricket match more than a year back.
Of all his fans the world over one American who is pleasantly surprised by the brave heart’s speedy recovery will also be eagerly waiting to see him back in his game. He is not a cricket fan and he understands less of the rules of the game, but he would be delighted as well. He is an oncologist from Boston, Dr. Lawrence H Einhorn, who treated Yuvraj and signed the cricket superstar’s discharge certificate at the Indiana University’s Simon Cancer Center in March this year. Dr. Einhorn is set to witness Yuvraj’s ‘chemotherapy to competitive cricket’ journey as another success story after he treated cycling legend Lance Armstrong successfully at the same hospital.
Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has requested media not to hype Yuvraj Singh’s comeback and apply pressure on him. Rightly so, while all of his fans should rejoice at their hero’s comeback they should desist from howling for him to perform right away.
Along with Yuvraj, Harbhajan Singh who co-starred the former in India’s World Cup triumph in 2011 and T20 World Cup victory in 2007 is also making a comeback dropped after the disastrous tours of England and Australia. For New Zealand injured Daniel Vettori and Jacob Oram are coming back to strengthen the team. These two T20 matches on September 8 and 11 are going to be dress rehearsals for both the teams for the ICC World Cup T20-2012 starting in Sri Lanka from September 18 and the warm-up games beginning from September 13. The tournament will have 27 matches in all with 12 teams participating and the super eight matches starts from 27th September. The Final will be played on October 7 in Colombo.
For the moment let us wish all well for Yuvraj Singh.
