Former India opener VB Chandrasekhar has been appointed head coach of Tamil Nadu, following the resignation of their batting coach Abdul Jabbar. It will be Chandrasekhar's first coaching stint with a state side.

"For five years, I have donned the role of a commentator. To actually chalk out strategy and execute it will be a new challenge altogether. I am looking forward to it," Chandrasekhar told the Hindu.

Chandrasekhar, 50, played most of his cricket with Tamil Nadu and scored 4999 runs from 81 first-class matches. He had been one of the team's key players in their Ranji Trophy triumph in 1987-88, with over 500 runs in the season. One of the highlights of his career came the following season in the Irani Trophy, when he scored a 100 off 56 balls, then the fastest hundred in first-class cricket by an Indian. He captained Tamil Nadu for a few years, before joining Goa as a professional.

Chandrasekhar has also served on the national and state selection panels.
