Profile

Nirode Chowdhury, died on December 14, 1979, aged 56, at Durgapur, where he was coach at the local steel plant. Chowdhury, the first Test cricketer from the state of Bihar, was a slightly-built but lively medium-paced off-spinner who played one Test for India in 1948-49 and another one three years later. He was picked to tour England in 1952 but hardly figured. His best analysis came in his first game in the Ranji Trophy, in 1941-42, when he took seven for 79 for Bihar against Bengal.
