Unmukt Chand is an Indian professional cricketer who had captained the country to a title triumph at the 2012 Under-19 ICC Cricket World Cup, India’s 3rd win at the tournament. He had top-scored in the team’s win over Zimbabwe in the group stage and had then produced a ‘Player of the Match’ winning performance in the final against Australia, scoring 111 runs not out in a 6-wicket victory. His performance and maturity had seen him being earmarked by many pundits and experts as a future star in world cricket. However, sustained poor form in the domestic circuit thereafter and limited scope for a place in the senior national team had seen him announce his retirement from playing cricket in India in August 2021. The decision was taken because the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) does not allow its registered players to compete in leagues abroad. He had held ambitions to play league cricket in the United States and eventually qualify to play international cricket for that country after completing his residency and qualification period. Before this, in the Indian domestic circuit, he had played for the state teams of Delhi (2010–2018) and Uttarakhand (2019–2020) across all 3 formats. In the IPL (Indian Premier League), he had turned out for Delhi Daredevils (2011-2013), Rajasthan Royals (2014), and Mumbai Indians (2015-2016).
