Amitabh Choudhary Passes Away : In a shocking news, former BCCI joint secretary Amitabh Choudhary passed away on Tuesday morning following a massive cardiac arrest. He was 58.

Doctors and his close associates said that Choudhary suddenly collapsed at his residence in Ashok Nagar in Ranchi. He was rushed to the hospital but could not be saved.

Ex-Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) chairman, Amitabh Choudhary was instrumental in making Ranchi the headquarters of Jharkhand cricket, shifting the base from Jamshedpur. A world-class stadium was built there under his watch, with one end of the stadium also named after him.

He also worked under BCCI's Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and had to deal with the Virat Kohli-Anil Kumble saga, which saw the then head coach resign due to dressing room conflicts.
