“KKR’s Brett Lee Ended His IPL Career”- Twitter Reacts As Unmukt Chand Joins Los Angeles Knight Riders In USA’s Major League

Unmukt Chand is a former India U-19 captain who led the nation to the ICC U-19 World Cup win in the year 2012. Chand played for multiple teams in the IPL as well. He started with his home team Delhi Daredevils and then moved to the Rajasthan Royals and the Mumbai Indians.

While Unmukt Chand played a few decent knocks in his IPL career, a majority of the fans remember him because he faced the first ball of IPL 2013. Defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders were up against the Delhi Daredevils at the Eden Gardens.

Brett Lee opened the bowling for the Kolkata Knight Riders, and he dismissed Unmukt Chand clean bowled on the first ball of that match. Chand never recovered after that dismissal as it was a grand stage, and he could not deliver the goods.

A few years later, Chand remained unsold at the auction and even became a commentator at a young age. He then retired from all formats of Indian cricket and joined the United States of America. Chand will make his debut for USA soon, but before that, he will be in action, playing for the Los Angeles Knight Riders in the Major League Cricket.

Chand has been playing in tournaments after moving to the USA, but MLC 2023 will be the biggest one where he plays. Several IPL franchises have a team in the competition. The Draft for the inaugural MLC season happened earlier today, where KKR-owned Los Angeles Knight Riders drafted Chand in their squad.

“Round 2: Look who we’ve got here! @UnmuktChand9 is a Knight  Welcome to the family,” Los Angeles Knight Riders wrote on Twitter.
