India’s Under 19 World Cup-winning captain, Unmukt Chand has opened up on his international aspirations in the coming years with team India. Unmukt Chand led India to an Under 19 World Cup win in 2012 in Australia. He smashed a scintillating century in the final of the tournament against the hosts and helped India win the title.
Although Unmukt was regarded as the next big thing in Indian cricket after Virat Kohli, the Delhi-based batsman still awaits an opportunity to make his senior international debut. His career after the Under 19 World Cup has seen a downfall, and he has majorly been a part of only domestic and first-class cricket circuit in the country.
Now that Unmukt Chand has come so far in his career, he has revealed his aspirations are going ahead in his international journey.
Unmukt Chand Opens Up On His International Cricket Aspirations
Speaking exclusively to CricketAddictor.com, Unmukt Chand said, “When you look at anyone’s cricketing career, it has a few ups and downs. It’s just that some face it early on, while others face it in the latter stages of their career. “
“I feel my journey has just started. I have had a good junior cricket experience, not just the world cup, but even before that, the Under 16s, the Under 19s, in the various tournaments that I played. I was leading India regularly for the next 2-3 years after the World Cup,” Unmukt added.
A Few Good Innings Will Change The Entire Scenario: Unmukt Chand
“In the last 2-3 years, a lot of ups and downs have happened, but its all part of the game. I am still 27 and there is a long time to go. The process of improving doesn’t stop for me. A few good innings will change the entire scenario,” Unmukt Chand further said.
“If I play, I think I should be prepared enough to face the challenge that comes with playing for the country. I hold no grudges, I am happy to learn, I really enjoy the whole journey. We all look at success, but these lessons are very important for us to grow as well. It makes you a stronger cricketer and a better person as well,” Unmukt concluded.
