Mumbai, June 17 : Former India opener Arun Lal is all set to resume his cricket commentary career.


The 61-year-old Lal, who was diagnosed with the jaw cancer and underwent a 13-hour long surgery in February this year had to take a break from his work.


Speaking from his Kolkata home on Friday evening, he says, "I am much better and am doing commentary on Saturday. It is a Day/Night league final to be played with the pink ball and it will be shown on Star".


"I am very positive and determined to get back to normal as fast as I can".


"The doctors at Tata Memorial Center (Kolkata) have performed a miracle. I am looking great with very little distortion".


Dr. P. Arun, who was a part of the surgery team will be keeping his eyes and ears open.


"Mr. Lal getting back to work is great news. I appreciate his grit in braving a very intense course of treatment and his positive attitude must be an encouragement to all patients battling the disease", Dr. P. Arun, speaking exclusively said on Friday.


"His coming out (for the commentary) has sent the right message that cancer cannot stop you if you have decided to move on".


"Mr. Lal may still be having a lot of sequel of the treatment but these will ease out in course of time. There are no restrictions on him. Lets sound positive here !", he added.


"All cancers have a theoretical chance of recurrence. Lets not individualize".


"I watch cricket and enjoy it. I worked hard on my cricket but could not even make it to the school cricket team !", the surgeon signed off.
