There is a wave of mourning in the cricket world due to the death of BCCI administrator Amitabh Choudhary


Ranchi: Cricket administrator Amitabh Choudhary passed away on Tuesday morning. Jharkhand State Cricket Association officials confirmed this. Chowdhary, 58, served in the JSCA for over a decade and was also the BCCI Joint Secretary.

During the governance of the Committee of Administrators in the Cricket Board, he also served as the Acting Secretary.

Former BCCI treasurer Anirudh Choudhary, a long-time fellow of Choudhary, condoled the demise of the administrator. In a conversation with the Indian Express, Chaudhary said, ‘Amitabh’s contribution to cricket in Jharkhand was immense. JSCA will miss him and it will be difficult to fill his place in Jharkhand. I extend my condolences to his family, friends, and well-wishers.

Chaudhary played an important role in making Ranchi the headquarters of Jharkhand cricket and brought the entire base here from Jamshedpur. A world-class stadium was built under his supervision and one end of the stadium was named after him. Former IPS Chaudhary also played a role in politics. But cricket was his passion. He was also the manager of the Indian team during the 2005-06 Zimbabwe tour. There were reports of a dispute between Sourav Ganguly and Greg Chappell on this tour.

Thereafter, Amitabh Choudhary worked under the CoA and BCCI and faced the challenge of difficult administrators. He was also a witness to the Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble controversy, where Kumble had to be dropped from the Indian team.
