Chaudhary is a delicate balance of strength and subtlety. He plays shots all round the wicket, is especially strong off his legs, and favours pulls and lofted drives. He has been one of Calgary's premier players from a young age and is consistenly among Calgary's top run scorers. Chaudhary is also a player to rise to the occasion as shown by his several half centuries at tbe U-25 Western Canadian tournament and a century in the City Game against Edmonton. Chaudhary also holds the C&DCL record for most runs in a single match posting 247 in a premier division match. Selected for the Canadian squad to play the USA in May 2004, he is yet to make his national debut (Rathan Moorthy, Alberta Cricket Academy, 2004, and http://www.canadacricket.com).
