After India's batting star Yuvraj Singh recuperated from cancer, his father and former Test cricketer Yograj Singh has been reportedly diagnosed with cancer. According to a report in the Indian Express, he is learnt be undergoing treatment in a hospital in New York, after a surgery to remove a tumour in his vocal chords.

It is learnt that Yograj had been diagnosed with the cancer a few months back, but was advised to go to US after his voice choked and he developed breathlessness.

During the 2011 World Cup, Yuvraj had played a pivotal role in India's victorious campaign. His astounding all-round performance during the quadrennial event earned him the 'Player of the Series' award. However, the aggressive southpaw was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour in his left lung and underwent chemotherapy in US.
