According to sources Yuvraj will be fit to play for the Indian cricket team soon adding that Yuvraj has been regularly taking Yoga sessions and attending the gym to achieve fitness.

 "This was the first match Yuvraj was playing after his treatment. He is feeling better now and will be fit to play for India soon," TOI quoted a source as saying.

"He is nearing full fitness and should be ready for the grind in a month's time," the source added.

Yuvraj Singh was diagnosed with the rare germ cell cancer early January and underwent chemotherapy in the United States. He returned to India in April and began his fitness drills last week.
