Cancer survivor Yuvraj Singh back for India

Indian all-rounder and World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh  will don national colours for the first time since battling cancer when a two-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand starts today.

The 30-year-old left-hander underwent chemotherapy in the United States in March and April to treat a rare germ-cell tumour between his lungs which was diagnosed late last year.
