They are real Champions. Hero of the hearts. Our Hero Yuvraj Singh is man of the tournament of Cricket World cup 2011 and Simon O’Donnell`s part of team Australia in 1987 Cricket World Cup. Both fight with cancer. Yuvraj Singh, has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy in the United States, his physiotherapist revealed. Yuvraj had earlier been detected with a tumour between his left lung and heart, which has since been termed malignant. “He is suffering from cancer and this is the first stage. It’s curable and he will be fit to play in May. He will be back on the field very soon,” his physiotherapist Jatin Chaudhary told.
However Multi-talented athlete Simon O’Donnell`s intelligent fast-medium bowling often proved to be more pivotal in Australia’s one-day fortunes. In the 1987 Cricket World Cup he had limited impact with the bat but was a significant wicket-taker and finished the tournament as Australia’s most economical bowler. O’Donnell was diagnosed with cancer at the end of the tournament. He made a strong recovery and returned to one-day international cricket from 1988-89. O’Donnell ended a promising Australian Rules football career to focus on cricket. He went on to become a valuable all-rounder in the Australian one-day team, and was a member of the side when it marked its resurgence with a surprise World Cup win in 1987. O’Donnell the cricketer is most keenly remembered for a number of explosive innings in Australia’s middle-lower order. His clean, powerful drives straight of the wicket and through mid-on were particularly effective. His feats included an 18-ball half-century against Sri Lanka in 1990, which remained the fastest 50 scored in ODI cricket for almost six years.
