NEW DELHI: Veteran cricket administrator Amitabh Choudhary passed away in the wee hours of Tuesday.

The update was confirmed by the Jharkhand State Cricket Association officials.He was 62 years old.

During the Committee of Administrators' regime in the cricket board, he also served as its acting secretary. He was nothing less than instrumental in making Ranchi the headquarters of Jharkhand cricket, thereby shifting the base from Jamshedpur.

A world-class stadium was built there under his watch and befittingly one end of the stadium was named after him.

Choudhary, who was appointed chairman of Jharkhand Public Service Commission in 2020, was the Indian cricket board acting secretary until 2019. One of the key persons behind the construction of the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi, which later got Test venue status, Choudhary is credited with the development of cricket infrastructure across Jharkhand.

He could not contest the JSCA elections in 2019 because of the "cooling-off" clause imposed by the Supreme Court following the Lodha Committee recommendations.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren condoled the demise of Choudhary on twitter, saying he was saddened by the untimely death of the cricket administrator, adding that he played a huge role in promoting the sport of cricket in the state.
