Yuvraj Singh: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Yuvraj Singh is healthily out of the Indian squad—for now.

What he said:

“Playing on one lung and playing on two lungs are completely different.”

Dashing left-hander Yuvraj Singh has never felt better in his life. The southpaw believes that he is currently at peak fitness.

Yuvraj said:

“I’ve trained quite hard. It’s been two years of hard work. I’ve never felt so good. I’m in much better shape than I was when I played the 2011 World Cup. I promise you that. Playing on one lung and playing on two lungs are completely different. As I said, I’ve given my comeback my best shot and I’ve never given up on anything. I have to keep fighting and keep believing in myself even when others don’t believe in me. That’s what I’ve always believed in.”

The 2011 World Cup man-of-the-series added:

“Of course, there is a possibility that I may never play for India again. I have considered that. But there is also the possibility that I might play for India again, and as long as I believe that I can come back and I have it in me, I’m going to keep pushing myself.”

On his recovery from lung cancer:

“This is definitely a second chance at life. Maybe I was destined to come back and play for India, and that’s why I’m still alive. I don’t know what the reasons are. There are times when I go to a YouWeCan event, I talk about cancer and awareness and early detection, which is important. But also, sometimes I do wish people understand that it’s also important for me to just focus on the game and playing it. When people come up to me and say ‘Oh Yuvi, what happened to you …’ and that kind of thing, I understand the emotion, and it’s great, but I also have to be positive and think about the future.”

What he said is what he meant.

What he definitely didn’t( Do we need this?):
