Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, who is undergoing chemotherapy for a malignant tumor located between his lungs, has tweeted, thanking his fans and well-wishers.

The cricketer has made it clear that his treatment was delayed not because of the fault of the BCCI or his physiotherapist Dr. Jatin Chaudhary. He blamed himself for the delay. It was my decision to go with alternative medicine, he tweeted Tuesday.

I see few people trying to blame my guruji for delay and bcci ! Again wrong it was my decision ! The president and the members of bcci have bin a huge support in my tough times and because of them I'm getting the best treatment ! Thank you again bcci, he tweeted.

The 30-year-old batsman, who was very much a part of Team India when it won the World Cup last year, communicated with his fans and supporters for the first time about his condition and expressed gratitude for their love and support. He vowed to return as a stronger man.

Thank you again to all my friends back home! I'm recovering well yes its tough but tough times don't last tough men do ! I will fight and come back as a stronger man cause I have the prayers of my nation ! Thank you to the media for there support and respecting my privacy

Yuvraj, who was the man of the tournament at the World Cup, was diagnosed with cancer just a few weeks after the tournament. His treatment was delayed because he had decided to be on alternative medicine all this while and now he is in the U.S. for treatment.

Yuvraj is reportedly overwhelmed by the love of his well-wishers and said that everyone's love and prayers would surely help him recover fast.

Yuvi tweeted that he had been reading the autobiography of Tour de France veteran Lance Armstrong, whom he was keen on meeting. He said, I look forward to meet lance armstrong soon and take inspiration!

He wrote he was eager to return and play for the country again. ..And of course everyday I look forward to come back and wear my india jersey my india cap and represent my country again jai hind he said.

It has been one month since Yuvraj got admitted to the Cancer Research Institute in Boston. According to doctors, he will be able to rejoin the team for training by May, reports blogs.bettor.com.
