From my early days until the 2011 World Cup, the war against cancer and then my return to cricket, I have seen a lot in my life and these experiences have made me the person I am today. I am thankful to my family, friends, fellow players and fans who supported me and encouraged me at every step. ‘
‘I’m proud that I played for my country’
Yuvi said that he regrets one thing that he could not play much Test match for India. He said, ‘When I look back, I feel that I should have got more chance to play Test cricket. At that time there were star cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Sourav Ganguly, it was difficult to make a place in the Test team. I got a chance when Sourav Ganguly retired, but after that I was diagnosed with cancer and my life went on a different turn. ‘
