Former India and Tamil Nadu cricketer VB Chandrasekhar passed away in Chennai following a cardiac arrest on August 15 (Thursday). He is served by wife and two daughters. He represented India in seven ODIs and scored 88 runs at an average of 12.57. In 81First class matches he piled up 4999 runs at 43.09 including 10 centuries.

During his playing days he was known for his aggressive stroke-making abilities and was often compared with Kris Srikkanth. In 1988, VB smashed a 56-ball century - the fastest hundred in Irani Trophy then. This knock caught the eye of the national selectors and earned him a national call-up.

VB Chandrasekhar donned many hats. He played a crucial role in Tamil Nadu's victorious Ranji Trophy campaign in 1987-88. Post retirement, he was a National selector between 2004 and 2006. He played an important role in convincing the Chennai Super Kings franchise to pick MS Dhoni over Virender Sehwag as their marquee signing. Later, in 2012-13 he was the coach of the Tamil Nadu team.

Currently, VB has a side named VB Kanchi Veerans in Tamil Nadu Premier League and was spotted at the stadium when his side clashed against Siechem Madurai Panthers in the playoffs few days ago.
