This will be a very emotional moment for him.
What does the rule say?
According to the rules, if Unmukt Chand can subscribe to America or else you can play for America as an NRI. One more question was whether permission would have to be taken from BCCI for this. Unmukt Chand has retired from all formats of BCCI, so he will not have any problem with BCCI. There is no possibility of any problem from India’s side also.

But at that time star players like Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Shikhar Dhawan were already present with the national team. These players always used to open for Delhi’s Ranji team as well. Unmukt Chand was a good player, but the place where he used to fit, there were already many big faces included in the national team, due to which he did not get a chance. For this reason, he resigned from all forms of cricket at the age of 28 and went to America.
