New Delhi: He led from the front during India U-19's recent Quadrangular championship victory Down Under and for colts captain Unmukt Chand, it was a learning experience facing Aussie pace sensation Patrick Cummins.
Unmukt scored an impressive century during India's seven-wicket victory against Australia in the final.
"It's been a huge confidence booster facing Pat Cummins. At the U-19 level, you don't get to play fast bowlers of Cummins' calibre. Out of my six sixes, I hit him for a couple and it felt good. Obviously, in my two seasons of domestic cricket, I haven't played anyone faster than Cummins and it made me feel that I have the ability to play real quicks," Unmukt told PTI during an interaction.
