Social media frenzy as teams get ready for IPL in Dubai | Cricket News – Times of India

Unmukt Chand: World Cup winning U19 India captain Unmukt Chand calls it a day | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Unmukt Chand, who had led India to U-19 World Cup title triumph but struggled to replicate his success at the senior level, on Friday announced his retirement from all forms of the game. Chand, 28, announced the decision on social media with a series of tweets and a lengthy note along with his some memorable videos.
