A retired senior IPS officer, Chaudhary played a major role in building one of the finest cricket stadiums in Ranchi and was instrumental in bringing international cricket and IPL to the industrial town. He had also served as a BCCI joint secretary and was an administrative manager with the Indian team on a few occasions. Chaudhary’s acting secretaryship tenure coincided with Indian cricket’s darkest administrative period when the Committee of Administrators (CoA) was in charge.
