Arjuna Award will be a great honour: Yuvraj
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Saturday recommended names of Yuvraj and batting great Rahul Dravid for Arjuna and Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Awards respectively.
"It will be an honour if I get the award. I didn't get it last time around so I hope I get it this time," Yuvraj, who has successfully recovered from a rare germ cell caner, told reporters here at the launch of his cancer foundation YouWeCan.
Yuvraj was also nominated for the Arjuna Award in 2007 when Dravid was considered for the Khel Ratna, India's highest sporting honour.
The BCCI nominated Yuvraj for the prestigious sports award considering his man of the series performance at the 2011 World Cup.
