New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) India’s star batsman Yuvraj Singh returned home Monday morning after undergoing treatment for rare germ cell cancer in the United States.

“Finally the day has come ! i am going home tomorrow ! cant wait , excited to see my friends and family ..see you india!! mera bharat mahan!” Yuvraj had tweeted on Sunday.

“Yuvraj is fine. He has fought a long innings against cancer. We are grateful to his fans for their support and wishes,” said Shabnam.
