Former India U-19 and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/delhi">Delhi</a> captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/unmukt-chand/news/">Unmukt Chand</a> has parted ways with the state and has made a move to Uttarakhand for the upcoming domestic season, having represented Delhi for nine seasons. He made his List A debut for Delhi in 2010 at the age of 16. Later that year, he played his first four-day game for the state against Gujarat. Chand also led Delhi in two Ranji Trophy fixtures in 2016 when Gautam Gambhir was on national duty. <p></p> <p></p>However, his first-class form dwindled and Chand was dropped from the playing XI in the next season. Although he kept his place in the team. In 2018/19 season, Delhi opted for Hiten Dalal to partner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/unmukt-chand/news/">Gautam Gambhir</a> at the start in Ranji Trophy, which meant there was no place for him in the squad. Chand's previous first-class appearance came against Karnataka in 2017. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="und">.<a href="https://twitter.com/BCCI?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@BCCI</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/delhi_cricket?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@delhi_cricket</a> <a href="https://t.co/Zo0CmZAgM2">pic.twitter.com/Zo0CmZAgM2</a></p> <p></p> Unmukt Chand (@UnmuktChand9) <a href="https://twitter.com/UnmuktChand9/status/1168739676548730881?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 3, 2019</a></blockquote> <p></p><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p></p> <p></p>&nbsp; <p></p> <p></p>In 2016/17, he was also dropped for <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/vijay-hazare-trophy/news">Vijay Hazare Trophy</a>, just a couple of days ahead of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/ipl">IPL</a> auction that saw him not getting a bid.
