Former India Under-19 World Cup winning captain Unmukt Chand on Friday announced his retirement from Indian cricket. The former Under-19 captain shared a lengthy note on Twitter confirming that he is retiring from Indian cricket but is ready to take advantage of opportunities across the globe. Chasing a target of 226, he played a match-winning innings of 111 not out in the open final to lead the junior team to World Cup victory in 2012.
After this explosive innings, he got a chance in the India-A team. A scintillating performance in domestic cricket and several good innings for India A saw him make it to the probable 30-man squad for the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. He also made it to the 30-man squad for the 2014 T20 World Cup, but India could not earn the call-up.
Chand started his domestic career from Delhi in 2010 and played for the team for 8 seasons. He was also made captain. He later switched to the Uttarakhand team in 2019 though he later returned to Delhi.
