In BBL 13, Chaudhary showcased his skills with both bat and ball, scoring 154 runs at an average of 25.67 and a strike rate of 142.59. He also picked up five wickets with his wrist spin. The 27-year-old, who hails from Punjab, became only the second Indian player after Unmukt Chand to play in the BBL.

Chaudhary’s move to Australia from India in 2020 proved to be a significant step in his cricketing journey. He was coached by Hurricanes Assistant Coach James Hopes in the KFC Queensland T20 Max Competition, where his talent caught the eye of the Hurricanes management.

The former Australia all-rounder, impressed by Chaudhary’s abilities, recommended him to the Hurricanes, leading to his inclusion in the team for BBL 13. Hurricanes Head Coach Jeff Vaughan praised Chaudhary’s growth as a cricketer and his impact on the team’s performance.

With his contract extension, Chaudhary expressed his excitement to continue playing for the Hurricanes and expressed his eagerness to return to Blundstone Arena, aiming to help his team win their maiden BBL title in the upcoming season.

Chaudhary will join the likes of Tim David, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis, Peter Hatzoglou, Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Mitch Owen, and Matthew Wade, who are already under contract with the Hurricanes for BBL 14.
