Yuvraj Singh is confident that he will return to playing cricket for India but says he is neither in a hurry nor anxious to do so, and that cancer has changed his approach to both life and the sport.
In his first media conference on returning to India after receiving treatment in the USA for a rare germ-cell cancer, Yuvraj said his chemotherapy cycles may have often left him 'depressed' and often in tears, but "cancer has taught him many things".
He was speaking at his academy, the Yuvraj Singh Centre of Excellence, at a Pathways School outside Delhi, turning up bare-head following his hair-loss due to chemotherapy.
He kept his sunglasses on indoors, not as a style statement, it was learnt, but rather to handle the extreme glare from camera lights.
He did not reveal any targets or ambitions related to cricket or his return.
During his time in the USA, Yuvraj's treatment had involved working with Dr Lawrence Einhorn, the doctor who had helped Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong recover from a form of cancer considered terminal.
