Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, an avid cricket follower, today wished Yuvraj Singh a speedy and complete recovery after the star cricketer was diagnosed with cancer.

"Here`s wishing Yuvraj Singh a speedy and complete recovery," Omar wrote on the microblogging site twitter.com.

"On a good day there are few cricketers more exciting than him," the Chief Minister added.

Yuvraj, who was player of the tournament during India`s successful World Cup campaign last year, has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy in the United States.

A tumour on his lung was diagnosed as non-malignant late last year, but his physiotherapist has now confirmed that it is cancerous.
