Currently focusing on India 'A' tour to New Zealand: Unmukt Chand

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday came out in support of U-19 World Cup winning captain Unmukt Chand, who has been denied to appear for the first year BA examinations by his college, St Stephens.

"Marks for sports takes back seat attendance for now takes centrestage. This shows how much importance sports has in India. Sad to hear," Dhoni wrote on his Twitter page.

Unmukt, who played a crucial knock of 111 not out in the final against Australia last Sunday to lead India Under-19 team to the World Cup glory, has been barred from taking the second semester exams because of low attendance.

The college demands a minimum of 33.33% of annual attendance under sports quota.
