In India, where cricket (CRICKET) is a religion, it is the dream of millions of young people to play for the national team. But that opportunity is not available to everyone. Truth be told, only one in a crore has the environment to feature in the Indian team. Why, even if he played in the Indian Under-19 team, it is not possible to feature in the national team.
A perfect example of that is Umukh Chand. As the captain of the Indian Under-19 team, he did not get the right opportunities here. Thus, he responded to Indian cricket by going to the United States and playing in local cricket matches in that country.
He has had the opportunity to play for the United States national team from 2024. Like him, another IPL celebrity Bipul Sharma has made this decision. He was part of the Hyderabad Sunrisers team that won the IPL trophy in 2016 and also played for the Punjab Kings.
An all-rounder, he has taken 126 wickets and scored 3012 runs in 59 first-class cricket matches. He has also played for Sikkim and Himachal Pradesh teams. In this situation, he has said goodbye to Indian cricket and is going to America to play there. Apart from these, Harmeet Singh and Smith Patel are already playing for the United States.
