For more than ten years, Amitabh Choudhary ruled over the JSCA. He was afterward named the BCCI’s joint secretary.
Amitabh Chaudhary, a former acting secretary of the BCCI and the current president of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA), passed away on Tuesday morning after suffering a heart attack. He was 58 years old. The last IGP was a top IPS official who retired after serving with the Jharkhand Police. He also served as the chairman of the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC).
“I was shocked to learn about Shri Amitabh Chaudhary’s premature death, the former chairman of the JPSC. Cricket in the region has benefited greatly from the contributions of former IPS officer Amitabh Ji. May his soul rest in peace, and may his family find comfort and strength during this terrible time. The chief minister of Jharkhand tweeted.
IIT Kharagpur alumni Chaudhary was crucial in maintaining Jharkhand’s first-class status during the early years of the new century, when the BCCI disbanded the Bihar Cricket Association under the guidance of the late Jagmohan Dalmiya.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni moved from Bihar to Jharkhand after receiving formal FC status and continued to play for the state until the end of his career.
Chaudhary merits appreciation for his part in bringing international cricket and the IPL to Ranchi by helping to build one of the city’s finest cricket stadiums.
He had moreover previously held the positions of joint secretary of the BCCI and administrative manager for the Indian squad.
Perhaps his most difficult task was his 2005 trip to Zimbabwe. where the infamous altercation between Sourav Ganguly, the team’s former captain, and the team’s then-coach occurred.
Chappell had requested in an email to Sharad Pawar, the BCCI chief, that Ganguly and a few other significant players be excluded during that terrible tour.
when executive power was exercised by the Committee of Administrators (CoA). Chaudhary was acting secretary during the worst era of management in Indian cricket history.
Due to the COA, Chaudhary was unable to work, which frequently caused him to feel extremely anxious.
However, Chaudhary was a talented storyteller who frequently entertained his audience outside of the different BCCI meetings with anecdotes that had everyone in stitches.
