'Cricket teaches you so much about life'

Having returned to India's Test and ODI squad following his battle with cancer, Yuvraj Singh tells Derek Pringle, from the Daily Telegraph, that cricket helped him beat the disease and get his life back on track.

"Cricket is a great game, it teaches you so much about life. I drew lot of inspiration from my cricketing career. I treated it as one bad session or one bad day in Test cricket where you have to fight hard to recover. While going through the treatment I used to watch my old videos and that really used to inspire me," Yuvraj said. "I always believed that if I get my life back I would get my cricket back because that is deep-rooted in me. There were times I got depressed with the pain and what all my body was going through but I was determined to wear that jersey once again."
