What is the correct age for retirement from cricket? Many players would answer this question by saying your heart never retires from a game like cricket. Although this decision is complete for the player, it affects the fans and the teammates of the player.
Recently an Under 19 World Cup star who was part of the winning Indian team announced his retirement. Unmukt Chand, captain of the Indian winning squad in the 2012 World Cup, wants to be out of Indian Cricket. The player is looking forward to joining the overseas leagues that would give him a better chance of grooving in the game.
After winning the final with an exceptional score from his bat, he was accepted as a captain for India A. He served India A as captain until 2015 by giving a solid job to the team. He is currently captain of Delhi and Uttarakhand domestic teams. He announced his retirement with a Twitter note and accepted that he wants to join the overseas opportunities.
His outstanding performance in the field achieved him a chance to be in the 30 member squad of the International Cricket Council’s 30 member team for the Champions Trophy. He was a selected member of the 2014 T20 world cup team, but unfortunately, he could not join the Indian team further in the journey.
He was one of the youngest cricket players who could get a chance at IPL. The Delhi Capitals selected him in 2011, and he performed well there until he was with the team. He was a part of the Vijay Hajare Trophy as well. After having a good time in Indian cricket, he wants to start fresh and wants to leap into the future.
