Unmukt Chand will feature in the upcoming Big Bash League season in Australia for the Melbourne Renegades. The 28-year-old becomes the first Indian male cricketer to play in the BBL.

“I’ve loved watching the Big Bash and players around the world coming in. It’s a great platform and I always wanted to play there. I’m really looking forward in the coming years that I can make a name for myself and hopefully win championships for the teams I play for,” the right-hander said.

Unmukt Chand, who hit a match-winning century in the 2012 Under-19 World Cup final, retired from Indian cricket earlier this year and moved to the United States of America to play in the Minor League, where he led his team Silicon Valley to the title.

The dashing batsman has had stints at the Delhi Daredevils (now Capitals), Rajasthan Royals, and Mumbai Indians in the IPL and had also captained India A. However, low returns with the bat saw him getting faded away.

“To have a player joining our team who has represented three IPL teams and led his country at ‘A’ and Under 19 level is fantastic,” Melbourne Renegades coach David Saker said of their new signing.

“As a batter, Unmukt is dynamic and can change games quickly. He has spent much of his career at the top of the order, but we believe he has the flexibility to fill a variety of roles as we need.”

Overall, he has played 77 T20s and has an average of 22.35 and a strike rate of 116.09. He has slammed three centuries as well.
