Currently out of action while recovering from non-malignant tumour in his lung, the stylish southpaw is targetting the tri-series in Australia for his comeback.
Yuvraj, who was adjudged Man of the Tournament for his exceptional show in the ICC World Cup, got to know about his ailment soon after the tournament.
