Description
A personal account of Yuvraj Singh's journey through cancer with the 2011 World Cup victory in the background
That day I cried like a baby not because I feared what cancer would do but because I didn't want the disease. I wanted my life to be normal, which it could not be.
For the first time Yuvraj Singh tells the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when on-the-field triumph hid his increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. In his debut book The test of my life, he reveals how-plagued with insomnia, coughing fits that left him vomiting blood, and an inability to eat-he made a deal with God. On the night before the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup final, Yuvraj prayed for the World Cup in return for anything God wanted. In this book, he lays bare his fears, doubts, and the lows he experienced during chemotherapy- when he lost his energy, his appetite, and his hair-and his battle to find the will to survive. Poignant, personal, and moving-The test of my life-is about cancer and cricket, but more importantly, it is about the human will to fight adversity and triumph despite all odds.

The atmosphere was tense out there on cricket field, and the intensity was felt by all of us watching the match live on television, with the veteran Indian batsmen back, and a novel middle order to cope with against the mighty Australian bowling attack comprising of McGrath, Lee and Gillespie. The day was 7th October 2000 when Yuvraj Singh, the flamboyant left hander took guard on the pitch for the very first time in an International match that too in one of the most prestigious tournament th...
