South Africa's legendary all-rounder Jacques Kallis has wished Yuvraj Singh, who is undergoing treatment for rare germ cell cancer, a speedy recovery.
"As we all know Yuvraj is going through a difficult time at the moment battling a serious illness and I went through a similar experience when my own father died of cancer at a relatively young age."
"I am sure the entire Proteas' squad and indeed the Cricket South Africa family joins me in wishing him a speedy recovery," Kallis said.
Kallis, who will be honoured by Cricket South Africa on March 30 for his contribution to the game, also said that he would make a donation to the Yuvraj Singh Foundation. "I would also like to announce that I will be making a personal donation to the Yuvraj Singh Foundation," he said.
Yuvraj's Foundation takes up various initiatives to promote welfare in the areas of Sports, Education, Health and Environment. It partners with NGOs and organisations who are working towards upliftment of the feeble section of society.
