The video is fairly long, so here are the highlights from Yuvi’s press conference in India.  He’s back after a long stint in Boston where he was treated for a rare form of germ-cell cancer, after which he made a stop in London before heading back to India.

Highlights:

“The cancer has gone from my body but the mental scars haven’t,”…  “The cancer was hard to diagnose. It was really scary. It was hard to believe that I had this illness. It was a hard time … difficult to understand what was going on”

“I was lucky my cancer was detected at the first stage. During the World Cup, I used to have breathing problems, coughing and vomiting.”

“At the moment I am very happy with the way I am living my life. I am being very positive as I always have been…. I am just happy to be back and in some months I hope to be back on the field.”

“It is important that I take care of my health.. I need to focus on my health rather than being emotional and want to come back to cricket. I will come back for sure, but my body has to recuperate.”

“I used to feel frustrated when I saw cricket matches during my illness but I always tried to be cheerful, have positive thoughts. At the moment, I’m happy and relieved to have got my life back. I don’t yet know what the lesson will be from this illness, but I’m sure there will be something.”
