The International Cricket Council (ICC) has been trying to take cricket to more countries as the sport, though watched by millions, is limited to only a few countries
The ICC has given the United States and the West Indies the T20 World Cup hosting rights for 2024, making it the first major cricket tournament to be held in North America.
Apart from Unmukt Chand, Corey Anderson (New Zealand) and Rusty Theron (South Africa) may also play against their own countries in the tournament in 2024.
Chand quit Indian cricket in August last year at 28 saying that things haven’t been “smooth” in the last few years and “opportunities have been denied.”
He has never represented India at the senior level, but has appeared in the IPL for the Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians, and Delhi Daredevils.
He also became the first Indian male cricketer to play for Australia’s Big Bash League where he was signed by Melbourne Renegades for the 2021-22 season of the T20 league.
