The Test of My Life is an autobiography of Yuvraj Singh in which he describes the ups and downs of his career. It’s the story of his toughest days and how he managed Dissertation Help to come out of it. It’s the story of not just his triumphs but one of the biggest setbacks and his comeback from a life-threatening cancer that could have ended his career.

Yuvraj Singh is the poster boy of Indian Cricket, the man who hit Stuart Broad (England fast bowler) for six sixes in an over in a World Twenty20 encounter against England in 2007. The ever smiling Yuvraj or “Pie-Chucker”, as he is fondly called or the bad boy of Indian Cricket is perhaps the second most loved player in Indian Cricket after the legend Sachin Tendulkar. He contributed immensely in India’s World Cup win in 2011 and was adjudged the Player of the Tournament.

The book gives an account of Yuvraj’s troublesome childhood when he did not want to be a cricketer but was forced in to the sport by his father Yograj Singh, another former International Cricketer who could not achieve much success and wanted to fulfill his dreams through his son.

The Test of My Life is a book of two stories, one of Yuvraj’s growing up and becoming one of the most successful cricketers of Indian cricket, becoming a role model for millions of people and other of him fighting cancer in Indianapolis, US, miles away from home in all the loneliness. In the first story Yuvraj describes his growth as a cricketer and how he matured as a cricketer but in the second part it’s about how he changed and matured as a person, his growth as an individual.

Yuvraj writes about his Ranji Trophy campaign, his dream debut against Australia in 2001, his ODI career and unsuccessful test career. India’s World Cup campaign has been wonderfully described. On the eve of match against England, he wasn’t feeling fit enough to play the game but Zaheer Khan (Indian fast bowler and his teammate) and Sachin Tendulkar convinced him to play. “You will matter when it matters the most”, were Sachin’s words of inspiration for him and the rest is history. Yuvraj played the World Cup with cancer, constantly coughing and not eating much.

The good news arrived when he was told by Dr. Einhorn that the cancer was out and that he could go back to leading a normal life.

In the last chapter Yuvraj talks about his emotional return to cricket. The whole country waited desperately for his return in a One-Day International match between India and New Zealand in Vishakhapatnam but to their dismay the game got washed out. Two days later Yuvraj made his come back in Chennai. But the return was not so easy, it took months of dedicated training at NCA, Bengaluru.

The book has been co-authored by Sharda Ugra and Nishant Jeet Arora. It’s not a book about the scoreboards. This book is dedicated by Yuvraj to his mother Shabnam Singh, who was with him through the thick and thin and in the worst moments of his life.He was the best player in world cup 2011.
