February 14, 2012 15:15 IST

Former Indian captain Kapil Dev on Tuesday wished Yuvraj Singh, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for germ cell cancer in the United States, a speedy recovery.

"I wish him all the best. My prayers are with him," said the 1983 World Cup-winning captain.

- Get well soon, Yuvraj Singh!

"He is a brilliant player. He has done a great service to the nation and I wish he recovers soon and resumes playing for the country," said Kapil in New Delhi.

The 30-year-old Yuvraj has been in the US since last month and is currently undergoing chemotherapy at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston.

The left-hander, who played a stellar role in India's World Cup triumph last year, has played 274 ODIs, scoring 8051 runs at an average of 37.62.
