Indian cricketer, Yuvraj Singh, has been diagnosed with lung cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy in U.S.

The 30-year-old left-hander played a stellar role in India's ODI World Cup triumph last year.


Yuvraj who has been in US since last month was undergoing treatment for what was initially claimed as non-malignant tumor. But it has now been diagnosed as malignant and is currently undergoing chemotherapy in the Cancer Research Institute in Boston.

Despite being cancerous, the ailment is 100 per cent curable, as it has been detected in stage one itself, assures his physiotherapist Dr Jatin Chaudhary.

With 362 runs, 15 wickets to his credit, Yuvraj was named the Player of the Tournament in the World Cup last year and has also received four Man-of-the-match awards.
