I wanted my life to be normal, which it could not be.For the first time Yuvraj Singh tells the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when on-the-field triumph hid his increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. In his debut book In Different Form, he will reveal how, plagued with insomnia, coughing fits that left him vomiting blood and an inability to eat, he made a deal with God on the night before the T20 final to give him the World Cup, in return for anything God wanted. He lays bare his fears, doubts and lows he experienced during chemotherapy when he lost energy, his appetite and his hair and battle to find the will to survive. Poignant, personal and moving, In Different Form, is about cancer and cricket but more importantly about the human will to fight adversity and triumph despite all odds.About the AuthorYuvraj Singh is a popular Indian cricketer and youth icon.
