Indian u19 world cup winning captain in 2012 Unmukt Chand who is been seen as a potential Indian top-order batsman way back in 2012 has announced his retirement today he has played his last IPL match in 2016 against Punjab Kings (earlier known as kings eleven Punjab).
He is only active in domestic cricket and remains unsold after the 2016 IPL auction. He makes a retirement decision just to focus on foreign leagues because BCCI does not allow active Indian players to play under these foreign leagues.
MEMORABLE MOVEMENT IN CAREER
Unmukt Chand shot to prominence when he captained India Under-19 to victory in the 2012 World Cup, upsetting hosts Australia with a calm, unbeaten 111 in a tense chase. His temperament stood out throughout the tournament as he guided India in unfamiliar conditions – it was his third consecutive century in a final for the under-19 side.
he led the team to a Triangular series win in Chennai. He then became only the third Indian batsman to make three T20 centuries when he slammed 103 off 58 balls for Delhi, against Gujarat in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2016.
DAWN OF A STAR
He has been brought by DELHI DAREDEVILS amid 2011 IPL auctions but his IPL JOURNEY is not that convincing because scored 300 runs in 21 innings with an average of 15.00 and strike rate of 100 as we all know IPL which is entertainment and not a mainstream cricket overshadow this star because selector only sees IPL as a selection criterion which is totally unacceptable as this lad has brought laurels to the nation in international side by winning u19 WC but IPL eats his 29 years old career.
He is bowled by a BRETT LEE with a nasty bouncer in the 2013 opening match vs KKR he opened the innings and golden duck. His IPL journey ENDS with an inswinger by Praveen Kumar in 2016 IPL which was his last IPL appearance I think management has taken this issue more seriously as these talents are getting wasted in terms of money league.
