New Delhi:

England's Kevin Pietersen has wished Yuvraj Singh a quick recovery and was quoted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's website as saying that the Indian cricketer 'is a stong bloke.'

Stating that he was looking forward to renewing his on-field friendship with Yuvraj, Pietersen said it was sad to see a fellow professional suffer from an illness. "It's tragic what's happened to Yuvi. He's going through a tough time and it's not fair to talk about him in terms of cricket at the moment. Right now the only important thing is for him to get back to full fitness as soon as possible."

Yuvraj recently completed his second cycle of chemotherapy and Pietersen said that the flamboyant south paw would be fine. "The man's a fighter; and he's one of the most talented cricketers that India has produced. I am in touch with him regularly. He'll be okay," he said.

Yuvraj Singh is in Boston where he is being treated for a rare germ cell cancer. He recently tweeted that he was touched by the support from fans and fellow cricketers. (See pics and his tweets here)
