Unmukt, who announced his retirement from Indian cricket last Friday, said, “I honestly still figure out because I don’t know how to feel. The thought of not being able to represent my country again really makes my heart swell for a while. Personally, there have been some wonderful moments in my cricket journey in India. Winning the Under-19 World Cup for India was a big moment of my life. It is a special feeling to lift the cup as a captain and bring it to the country. I will always remember leading India A on several occasions and winning various bilateral and tri-series.
