VB Chandrasekhar, the former India opener, has been axed as Tamil Nadu coach less than a year after taking charge. Chandrasekhar took over in July, but a disappointing run of results has led to his sacking.
Tamil Nadu are traditionally one of the stronger sides on the domestic circuit, but finished seventh in their group in the league phase of the Ranji Trophy and failed to progress from the zonal stage of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Tamil Nadu still have one tournament before the season closes, the Syed Mustaq Ali Twenty20 competition.
This was Chandrasekhar's first stint as coach of a state side. He played most of his cricket with Tamil Nadu and scored 4999 runs from 81 first-class matches in a 13-year career which ended in 1998. He has also served on the national and state selection panels.
