New Delhi: He may be all of 20 but when it comes to utilising his spare time off the field, former India U-19 captain Unmukt Chand is a chip off the old block compared to his contemporaries as he spend time penning his World Cup memories as well as reading some quality books.

Post IPL, it has been a well-deserved break for Unmukt, who was playing non-stop for more than one year.

"I have finished reading C.L.R. James' Beyond A Boundary and it's been a delightful experience. It's an amazing book. I never knew so much about West Indies cricket that I have come to know now after reading the book. It was about history and the class struggle of the people and you get to know so much more than just cricket," Unmukt, a student of St Stephen's College, told PTI on Friday.
