India skipper MS Dhoni and sports minister Ajay Maken came out in support of under-19 skipper Unmukt Chand in his ongoing battle with St Stephen’s.

The college barred Chand from taking his BA second semester exams due to lack of attendance.

“Marks for sports takes backseat attendance takes centrestage. Shows how much importance sports has in India,” tweeted Dhoni.

Maken said, “I intend to take up the issue with the Delhi University and with his college.”

There is a chance of the issue being resolved soon with DU Vice-Chancellor, Dinesh Singh, promising to find a way to help the player.
