Unmukt Chand : First Indian to be a part of Men's Big Bash League

Indian Premier League may be the best league in the world in terms of popularity and revenue, but Big Bash League has been in action earlier than IPL. 2008 saw the first edition of KFC Big Bash. Since the inaugural edition of the league, no Indian has been a part of the men's version of this league. Women in Blue have been a part of WBBL, but due to prohibition by BCCI, no men's cricketer from India could play the league till the last edition. In this edition, however, Unmukt Chand got the chance to be a part of playing eleven for Melbourne Renegades, making him the first Indian to do so.
