Yuvi must take care of his health: Kapil

Ahmedabad:Former India captain Kapil Dev on Friday heaped praises on double centurion Cheteshwar Pujara and Yuvraj Singh, who scored a half century on his Test return, but said it is important for the left-hander to take care of his health first. Yuvraj, playing his first Test since recovering from a rare germ cell cancer, scored a fluent 74 against England on Friday. "He is one of the finest cricketers and he has a long way to go but he must look after his health first and then he can go on playing," said Kapil. Asked if Yuvraj can sustain this kind of form for long, former India captain Ajay Jadeja said it was not for anyone else to say or decide but for the player himself. "Cricket is very simple... you play till you can sustain. You play as long as you are good enough and Yuvraj himself will say whether he is good enough to sustain for whatever number of years. "Right now Yuvraj is making a statement and it is not important whosoever is saying what," insisted Jadeja.
