Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh's triumph over cancer and subsequent return to the field may have inspired a nation � but for the man himself the hero is cricket's demigod Sachin Tendulkar

“As a kid I always looked up to Sachin and still continue to do so. He is my hero... he is the nation’s hero,” said Yuvraj at the launch of a book on Tendulkar yesterday.

Titled “The Peak”, the book — a unique snapshot story on Tendulkar by photo-journalist Suman Chattopadhyay — was launched by Yuvraj who handed the first copy of it to Tendulkar.

“Sharing the dressing room with Sachin has been a dream come true for me and it has been a wonderful journey with him,” added Yuvraj.

Yuvraj played a gritty knock in the first Test against England, but failed with the bat in the second match.
