Earlier, Chand, the former India U-19 World Cup-winning captain, announced his retirement in August 2021 from Indian cricket at the age of 28, saying he is open to “better opportunities around the world.”
“I don’t know how I should be feeling cause honestly, I am still figuring it out,” he wrote in a heartfelt post on Twitter. “The very thought of not being able to represent my country again literally stops my heartbeat for a while. Personally, there have been quite a few glorious moments in my cricketing journey in India. Winning the U-19 World cup for India is one of the biggest moments of my life. It was a special feeling to lift the cup as a captain and bring smiles to so many Indians across the world. I can never forget that feeling,” he added.

Chand, who led the U-19 national team in the 2012 World Cup, came into the limelight after scoring an unbeaten knock of 111 in the final of the tournament. After becoming an India A regular, he also captained the side till 2015.
The right-handed batsman’s heroics helped him make it to the 30-member squad for the 2013 Champions Trophy. He also made it to the 30-member squad for the 2014 T20 World Cup but couldn’t earn an India call-up. Despite being marked for success at the higher level, Chand never represented India at the international level.
