Indian s star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh said on Friday that he has completely recovered from the lung illness and is raring to get back to action.

Yuvraj, who is presently under training at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru says, “I have completely recovered and have been training for last two weeks. There is absolutely no problem with my fitness. I am able to run hard and my lung capacity is back. The trainers and the support staff at the NCA have been working hard on my fitness. In a week, I will be completely ready.”

“I am fit and raring to go,” he added.

The left-arm batsman says that failure of the star Indian batsmen to get big scores is hurting the team. “We haven’t scored runs. The top three batsmen — Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman – have not got those big runs. Viru (Virender Sehwag) has struggled to give good starts.”

“But I am hopeful that the team will stage a fightback in the last two Tests of the series. You also have to give credit to the Aussies – the way they have played in the series so far,” Yuvraj was quoted by Times of India.

Yuvraj said India will not have similar fate in Australia as they had in England, “I don’t know why people keep referring to what happened during the England tour. In Australia, we are going to play against two teams in the tri-series. The last time we played there, we were champions.”

Yuvraj also opined that the fans need to be careful with their language, after India s Virat Kohli was fined 50 percent of his match fees for showing vulgar signs.

“He (Virat) is young and when you are playing your heart out for your country, it’s really disappointing to get into such situations. I am surprised everyone is talking about Virat’s behavior, but no one is questioning the fans who misbehaved on the field. In my opinion, the security situation will have to be addressed. The fans need to be careful with the language,” he said.
