New Delhi:

After dedicating the 2011 World Cup victory to Sachin Tendulkar, the new mantra for Team India going into the World T20 is 'win it for Yuvi'.

"The way he has returned after a fightback (against cancer), not only Indians, but every sports lover is extremely emotional about Yuvraj and is backing him," says Irfan Pathan. "If we win (the World T20) a lot of credit will go to him," the cricketer adds wishing Yuvi "all the best" for the tournament ahead.

Yuvraj Singh returned to international cricket after nearly a year's gap. He underwent treatment for rare germ cell cancer. Yuvi returned to enthrall his fans with some trademark cricketing shots and announced his readiness to be a part India's World T20 campaign, that starts in Sri Lanka from September 18.

Teammate Suresh Raina also echoed Pathan's words. "His comeback is a very sentimental issue for everyone in the team," says Raina. "I wish him the very best for the World T20.)
