You all remember Unmukt Chand? Of course, you do, if you have been following cricket for a while. If not, let me tell you. He was one of the finest batting talents in the Indian U-19 team in 2012. Actually, he used to make headlines even before that. He captained the Indian U-19 team in 2012 and led the team to World Cup triumph in Australia.

He was being reckoned as India's next Virat Kohli as he hailed from Delhi as well, like the current Team India skipper. He was in sensational form in the U-19 World Cup where he scored three consecutive centuries, including an unbeaten 111 against Australia in the final. But, things changed for him in 2016 when he was dropped from Delhi’s team. And now in the latest turn of events, the 28-year-old has announced his retirement from Indian cricket. He may opt to play for a foreign nation, as he wrote in his retirement letter.

Let's move on from this and try to know everything about him:
