The Sky Is the Limit

The Sky Is the Limit

My Journey to the World Cup


In August 2012, at the Tony Ireland stadium in Townsville, Australia, a star was born. Unmukt Chand led the India U-19 team to its first World Cup win outside Asia, leading them there with a stellar performance of his own. Now on the cusp of finding a place in the national team, Unmukt stands as a beacon for the future of Indian cricket. In this book Unmukt describes, in his own words, his journey up until this point, and how he came to represent his country—as captain no less—and brought home this prestigious trophy. Inspirational, revelatory and intensely engaging, The Sky is the Limit is the story of how one young man’s determination to work hard and take every chance he got made his dream come true.

Unmukt Chand
Unmukt Chand
Unmukt Chand was born on 26 March 1993 in Delhi. He traces his roots to Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand. The promising cricketer, who led the India Under-19 team to World Cup victory in Australia in August 2012, has also captained the India A one-day team. Apart from representing India A, Unmukt is also part of India Under-23, North Zone, Delhi, and Delhi Daredevils teams. At age seventeen, he was the youngest to play the Indian Premier League. The prolific batsman also led the India U-19 side to victory in the Asia Cup (2012), and two U-19 quadrangular series (2011 and 2012). Among the prominent awards that have come his way in his cricketing career are the Castrol Best Junior Cricketer of the Year 2011–2012, and the CEAT Indian Youngster of the Year 2012. Unmukt is an avid reader and maintains a regular diary and, much like he collects his runs, is forever adding to his English vocabulary. He is presently doing his undergraduation at St. Stephen’s College, Delhi.
