Bhubaneswar, Odisha: Indian cricket player Yuvraj Singh on Friday brought smiles on the faces of some kids afflicted with cancer and autism as he met them at Mayfair Hotel in Bhubaneswar this morning.

Debashish Mohanty and Shiv Sundar Das, the two former international cricketers from Odisha, facilitated the meeting of the children with Yuvraj.
