Ishwar Chaudhary is a genuine quick who has excelled over the past two Ranji Trophy seasons. His form has seen him feature towards the top of the bowling wicket charts. He's arguably been the best-performed seamer in Ranji Trophy, with season tally's of 51 wickets at 20.58 and 49 wickets at 22.30 in 2018/19 and 2019/20, respectively.

A tall, powerful quick, Chaudhary has forged a big reputation in domestic cricket, across all formats. The former India Under-19 player, who featured alongside the likes of Virat Kohli, Ravi Jadeja and Piyush Chawla, has been on the domestic circuit since the 2006/07 season.

Such was his promise, the opening bowler was sent to Australia by the BCCI in September 2007 to play for the Australia Centre of Excellence. The following year, he was picked up by the Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2008 and 2009 Indian Premier League editions. He went on to play 9 seasons for Gujarat (2008/09-2017/19) before his move to Sikkim for the 2018/19 season. During this period, he featured for the West Zone (2010/11, 2011/12, 2016/17) and India Green (2011/12), so was on the national radar.

Chaudhary’s red-ball format over the past two seasons has been exceptional, backing up his white-ball success in recent years. Playing for Sikkim, the right-arm seamer finished tied for fifth on the wicket charts with 51 poles at 20.58 (he was the leading seam bowler) in 2018/19. He captured 4 five-wicket bags and 2 ten-wicket match hauls. Chaudhary backed up his 2018/19 exploits with a further 49 poles at 22.30 with 6 five-wicket hauls last summer to finish as the seventh leading Ranji wicket-taker!

The in-form Chaudhary, fresh from his Ranji exploits, embarked on his maiden UK stint in 2021. Playing for Bishopston in the strong West of England Premier League (Prem 2 Bristol/Somerset), the Indian seamer took 18 wickets at 21.78. In all cricket, he bagged 25 wickets at 17.92, to include best figures of 6-16 in the quarter-final of the Gloucestershire County Cup.

Chaudhary thoroughly enjoyed his maiden UK stint and is now eager to return to Northern shores once again in 2022. A high-quality signing, who we suggest will be an excellent second-year signing next summer.
