Soon after his exploits in the 2011 World Cup, Yuvraj was diagnosed with cancer, for which he took treatment in the US before making a comeback to Indian team.
Yuvraj was discharged from the hospital after his third and final chemotherapy in March 2012. He had what’s called mediastinal seminoma cancer.
Yuvraj met Rishabh Pant, who is recovering from the multiple injuries he suffered during a horrific road accident.
“Onto baby steps!!! This champion is going to rise again. Was good catching up and having a laugh. What a guy positive and always funny!! More power to you @rishabpant,” Yuvraj posted on his Twitter handle.

Pant recently gave his fans a glimpse of his road to recovery. Pant shared a video in which he could be seen walking in a swimming pool as a part of his recovery and captioned it, “Grateful for small things, big things, And everything in between.”

Pant will miss IPL 2023 and in his place, David Warner has been named as the captain of his franchise, Delhi Capitals. Axar Patel will be Warner‘s deputy.
In the wee hours of December 30, Pant, 25, miraculously survived after his Mercedes car collided with a divider and caught fire on the Delhi-Dehradun highway while he was on the way to his hometown Roorkee.
