Yuvraj, who is presently recuperating from a rare germ cell cancer after undergoing treatment in the US, says that he might make a comeback to international cricket in the tournament, provided he is 100 percent fit.
Yuvraj said in an interview for an International Cricket Council (ICC) show, "I think (the) favourites are India because we've got the biggest hitters - biggest hitters in town that's what I want to say. Hopefully I should be back by then.”
He added, “I'm not saying I'm the reason, it's just that I feel we have the strongest side and if we can sort out our bowling out in T20 I'm sure we can be a strong unit. There are other strong teams like Australia, South Africa which always compete at the top level at world events.”
India’s hero in the successful 2012 World Cup campaign, Yuvraj cautioned that he will not be pushing too hard for the comeback.
"Well I can't really give a timeframe but I have to see how my body is recovering and how fast I can come on the field. Actually I don't want to rush and I don't want to come back at 75 percent fitness. I might take six months, I might take two months. So I don't know. But the day I feel 100 percent I surely will be back," he said.
"Playing for India is going to be a huge challenge for me because the body has been under a lot of shock which nobody can understand except me. Only a cancer patient can understand what he is going through. So it's going to be a big challenge for me to come back and play for India again."
