Unmukt Chand led India to U19 World Cup victory in 2012
Unmukt Chand was the captain of India U19 team when the side won the World Cup beating Australia in the final. It was the skipper who had led from the front in the title clash scoring a scintillating century in a tricky chase. He was then touted as the next big thing in the Indian cricket but unfortunately, the man never got the opportunity at the highest level and also at the domestic level while playing for Delhi.
However, he mesmerised many with his batting a lot of times during his 67 FC, 120 List A and 77 T20 matches. Overall, Unmukt scored 18 centuries and 53 fifties in her career and also played for Uttarakhand in search of opportunities before deciding to move his base to the USA earlier this year. He has already played a few brilliant knocks in the Minor League cricket in US and will be looking forward to do well in the BBL next month.
