"The diagnosis of cancer shortly after the high of the World Cup victory, it took the joy out of everything, it was a very dark moment in my life, that little mental wince again," Yuvraj was quoted as saying by Cricketnext.
Unfortunately, Yuvraj never regained the form post his recovery from the disease.
But he still registered his highest ODI score in 2017.
"But what I learnt from that and subsequently is never to give up. You control the things that you can control. People thought that my career was over after cancer, and I came back and registered my highest one-day score."
