The greatest of all hockey players, he learned the game in the Indian Army and had a dazzling international career between 1926 and 1936, days when Indian hockey was incomparably the best in the world. Chand played centre forward in the teams which won the Olympic gold medals in 1928 and 1932 and he captained India to their third successive title in 1936. In those three tournaments, India scored an aggregate of 102 goals to three. During a tour of New Zealand in 1935, Chand scored 201 goals out of 584. In 1947-8 he made his parting appearance at international level as captain of the team which India sent on a goodwill demonstration tour of East Africa. The magic touch of Chand was all his own, a gift of nature.
In the 1936 Olympic final, he scored six goals in India's 8-1 win over Germany.
His brother Roop Singh Bais was also on the team in 1932 and 1936, and his son Ashok Kumar won bronze in 1972.
