New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh, who returned to India from Boston last week after receiving treatment for a rare germ cell cancer, will attend the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix that starts on Friday at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir.
According to a Daily Gulf News report, he will be a special guest of leading Bahrain businessman and a keen cricket fan Mohammed Dadabhai and his family.
"We are honoured to have Yuvraj as our guest during the Formula One Grand Prix. It will be a great moment for both Bahrain where the race will be held and India from where Yuvraj will be coming from," a Dadabhai family member told the newspaper.
The report also said that the BIC officials have been informed about Yuvraj's arrival and they are thrilled to have the Indian cricketer for the race. "It will add colour and glamour to the event and many of his fans may get a chance to see their hero in flesh and blood," said a Dadabhai Group official.
Yuvraj, who claimed 15 wickets and scored 362 runs in the 2011 World Cup held to win the prestigious Man-of-the-Tournament award, is likely to return to the cricket field later this year.
He has played 37 Tests, 274 One-Day Internationals and 23 Twenty20 matches since his India debut in 2000.
