“As I go back in times today, my life has been like a roller coaster ride. Winning the 2011 World Cup, being man of the series, four Man of the Match awards was all like a dream, which was followed by a harsh reality - getting diagnosed of cancer. It was like touching the sky and then falling down at light speed and hitting the ground hard.
