Unmukt becomes first Indian male cricketer to play in BBL

One of the shocking decisions that Indian cricket saw in 2021 was when Unmukt Chand decided to retire. The former U19 Captain, who helped India lift the trophy, decided to relocate to the USA to pursue opportunities there. For a player who was once considered as the future of Indian cricket, it was tough to see him leave the country for many.

Nevertheless, the Delhi lad is exploring opportunities across the globe. He is consistently playing games in the USA, something that was not possible in India. In those fixtures, the batsman is doing well at the moment. A few weeks ago, Melbourne Renegades announced that they had signed up Unmukt Chand. However, the player did not get an opportunity till now. That said, for the encounter against Hobart Hurricanes, Unmukt was named in the XI.

Melbourne Renegades were chasing a total of 183 and they got off to a good start. Unmukt Chand walked out to bat with the Renegades needing 45 runs from 31 deliveries. The player tried his best but in an effort to enforce the situation, he lost his wicket. He made six runs off eight deliveries and was caught in the deep of Sandeep Lamichhane’s bowling. Despite Aaron Finch being at the wicket, Renegades failed to win the game. They are now at the bottom of the points table and it will be hard for Unmukt to get another chance. Meanwhile, here is what Twitter had to say about Unmukt’s debut outing in BBL.
