Former India Under-19 captain Unmukt Chand has suffered an eye injury while playing for Silicon Valley Strikers in Minor League Cricket in the United States.

The 29-year-old, who retired from Indian cricket to be able to play in the US, shared on social media an image of his swollen eye.

“It’s never a smooth ride for an athlete. Some days you come home victorious, other days disappointed & there are some when you come home with bruises and dents,” tweeted Chand who led India to the U-19 World Cup title back in 2012.

“Grateful to God to have survived a possible disaster. Play hard but be safe. It’s a thin line,” wrote the Delhi-born player.
