Former India and Tamil Nadu cricketer VB Chandrasekhar allegedly ends life by hanging himself at his residence in Chennai on Thursday evening. He was 57. 

Police said Chandrasekhar’s wife Soumya told them that he was upset over the losses incurred while running a cricket league team and thus he committed suicide. Chandrasekhar owned a team called VB Kanchi Veerans in the Tamil Nadu cricket league and was also running a cricket coaching centre.

"BCCI regrets to inform that former India opener VB Chandrasekhar is no more. Our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and his fans," tweeted the Indian cricket board while offering their condolences.

"Very shocking to hear VB Chandrashekhar Indian cricketer is no more...very sad news...very young to go...rest in peace VB...Big loss, condolences to the family," Harbhajan Singh tweeted.

Chandrasekhar, who is survived by his wife and two daughters, represented India in seven ODIs between 1988 and 1990. VB Chandrasekha was a batsman who blasted a 56-ball century - the then fastest hundred in India's first-class competition in the Irani Cup tie against Rest of India 
after Tamil Nadu's victory in March 1988.
