As we all know about the man who won the World Cup for Team India, Yuvraj Singh, was diagnosed with a rare germ cell cancer. Fortunately it was detected in the initial stages. But battling a disease like cancer even at the very first stage is never easy. Yuvraj battled it out and now he is back in the Indian side.

The way southpaw plays on the field is a treat to watch but the way he battled this severe disease is an inspiration to many and especially to those who are struggling to come out of it. Yuvraj Singh on Tuesday released a book, The Test Of My Life. This book talks about Yuvraj's successful battle with a rare germ cell cancer. The dashing batsman has shared his experiences "so that someone else can feel they are not alone when the chips are down."

The occasion was memorable one and the entire Indian cricket team was present, along with a sizeable gathering of well-wishers and media. Popular T.V cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle was the host of the event.

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was also present at the release of his memoir and the master became emotional when he recalled the moment when he was scared of breaking down in front of Yuvraj when he had met him in London after his treatment in the US.

"When I went to meet him in London, I was telling my wife (Anjali) that I don't want to break down when I see him. I met him and gave him a tight hug. We enjoyed a meal and from the way he (Yuvraj) ate, I was convinced that he is back on track," said Sachin Tendulkar while talking to mediapersons at the book release.

"When I saw my wife discussing medical terms with Yuvraj, I realised what he has been going through. He is like my younger brother and I would ask God why it (the illness) had to happen to Yuvraj," said Sachin Tendulkar.

A person in the Indian team who is very close to Yuvraj, Harbhajan Singh -- as both come from the same state team Punjab -- said that he would call him but not talk about the disease.

“I wanted to keep him in good humour so I used to recall the days and incidents of our early days in cricket. I knew what Yuvraj was going through. But I’ve always believed that laughter can help change a few things in life,” said Harbhajan Singh at the event.

Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni too recalled the days when he would address Yuvraj as “aap” since he was a senior cricketer. The Indian captain conceded that he was always scared of Yuvraj’s temper. He still is.

Virender Sehwag, praised the fighter in Yuvraj Singh and the former said that he knew Yuvraj will fight it out and come up trumps.

“I knew he would make a comeback. But did not know he could return to cricket so soon. Hats off to Yuvraj,” said Virender Sehwag.

Later, Yuvraj Singh’s mother Shabnam also had a few anecdotes to narrate.

The man who battled a disease as severe as cancer, Yuvraj Singh said, “World Cup was missing from Sachin’s collection. So it was also a reason to win the Cup for him.”

The book is priced at Rs. 399 and co-authored by Nishant Arora and Sharda Ugra. It is an account of Yuvraj’s battle with cancer and his return to international cricket.
