Sagar(MP): Among those praying for the quick recovery of Yuvraj Singh, undergoing treatment for cancer in the US, is a noted folk singer from Bundelkhand region who has composed an `Alaah` (song for warriors) in praise of the cricketer with a hope that it will help him get better.

"Large number of Yuvi`s fans are praying for him by visiting religious places. I`m singing an `Alaah` highlighting his qualities and his memorable innings, especially those played during last year`s World Cup. It is my humble prayer for his well-being," singer Hargovind Vishwa said.

The die-hard fan of Yuvraj says that while singing the `Alaah`, he believes that the cricketer is listening to it and will emerge victorious in his battle against the disease.

In the Bundelkhand region `Alaah` is being sung for warriors who go on a war since the past 800 years.

The 30-year-old cricketer on Thursday revealed that the malignant lung tumour, for which he is undergoing chemotherapy, is "almost out of his system" after the first cycle of treatment.
