Indian cricket

Chand should be elevated soon

India Under-19 captain Unmukt Chand has been praised as having the temperament to succeed at the international level. Greg Chappell, writing in his column in The Hindu, says that if the selectors see him in that light, the earlier he is selected in the Indian team, the better.

Chand has already made it to the first-class ranks and has notched up his first century. If he is to become the next big thing in Indian cricket, it is important that the national selectors recognise him as soon as he gives them the opportunity. Two or three more centuries at that level, if made in good style, should be enough to warrant some exposure to the best bowlers.
