Chand came into the limelight after he scored a terrific century against Australia in the U-19 World Cup finals in 2012. His innings helped India take the U-19 World Cup trophy. But after that, he could not achieve much success at the senior level and he announced his retirement from Indian cricket. 

In August 2021, he shifted his base to the USA and is currently playing for them. Chand had told Hindustan Times, “For two years I was being sidelined by the Delhi selectors. I was really frustrated and could not understand why DDCA was not giving me chance. So, I shifted to Uttarakhand for a season. An injury hurt my cricket during that time. I was gutted, and when I got an offer from USA Cricket to play in the US, I (decided on) to start my career afresh. I’m very happy with the decision I made. It will be great to play in the BBL. I won’t be able to play in any other T20 league as I just get two months off from USA Cricket in a season”.
