Unmukt Chand shot to prominence when he captained India Under-19 to victory in the 2012 World Cup, upsetting the hosts Australia with a calm, unbeaten 111 in a tense chase. His temperament and self-belief stood out throughout the tournament, helping India through in unfamiliar conditions - it was his third consecutive century in a final for India. Chand is the latest in the assembly line of Delhi batsmen, and has been compared to the likes of Virat Kohli, a world U-19 title-winning captain in 2008. He also had the benefit of two seasons in first-class cricket and an IPL contract before the World Cup. He made his Ranji debut while still in school, and hit his maiden century (151) in his fourth game. An aggressive right-hander, he tends to go for his shots early. Chand is also an interesting personality off the field, maintaining a regular diary and reading dictionaries in his spare time.
