To win the U19 WC in Oz and to top the batting averages was great work by Chand. I was a Chand fan, but where did he lose it? Since then he has only given an occasional good innings. He is still young and probably needs guidance. In comparison Zol, Aparajith, Samson are much better. BCCI even awarded him a scholarship to Oz early in his career. He needs to buckle up and repay the faith invested in him - right now he seems to be only a ODI player.

Unmukt is a talented cricketer and is a winner. He is a big match player and should be selected in India 15 to get exposed to senior cricket.

One thing that needs improvement is your attitude as you along with Kohli have one of the worst attitudes. No doubt you are a batting talent, but unless you can develop a level head on your shoulders you will not be able to achieve what the other gr8s like SRT, The Wall, LAX did in their careers.
