Sachin is my hero: Yuvraj Kolkata: Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh`s triumph over cancer and subsequent return to the field may have inspired a nation, but for the man himself the hero is cricket`s demigod Sachin Tendulkar.

"As a kid I always looked up to Sachin and still continue to do so. He is my hero... he is the nation`s hero," said Yuvraj at the launch of a book on Tendulkar Sunday.

Titled "The Peak", the book , a unique snapshot story on Tendulkar by photo-journalist Suman Chattopadhyay -- was launched by Yuvraj who handed the first copy of it to Tendulkar.

"Sharing the dressing room with Sachin has been a dream come true for me and it has been a wonderful journey with him," added Yuvraj.

Yuvraj played a gritty knock in the first Test of the ongoing series against England, but failed with the bat in the second match in the Mumbai match. He would now be looking forward to hitting form in the next game at the Eden Gardens beginning Wednesday.

While the visiting England team reached the city on Saturday, the Indian team landed on Sunday.

The four match series is currently tied 1-1.
