India 455 (Kohli 167, Pujara 119) and 204 (Kohli 81, Broad 4-33) beat England 255 (Stokes 70, Bairstow 53, Ashwin 5-67) and 158 (Cook 54) by 246 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsIndias bowlers required just 38.1 overs to wrap up a 246-run victory on the final day of the second Test in Visakhapatnam, as Englands resolve - fatally weakened by the loss of two wickets late on the fourth evening - was finally cracked with nothing but pride left to play for. The damage had been done in a frantic morning session in which they slumped from 87 for 2 to 142 for 7, and the tail succumbed meekly after lunch, with only Jonny Bairstow showing any real resistance with 34 not out.The margin of victory perhaps overstated the gulf between the sides - the key difference, in every sense, was Indias captain and Man of the Match Virat Kohli, whose aggregate of 248 runs single-handedly accounted for the deficit in Englands balance. But, having fought so hard for so long, especially in the second half of the contest, the speed of their final-day demise was dispiriting for England, with the third Test in Mohali looming large next week.Contrary to all pre-match predictions, the pitch still wasnt spinning dramatically by the final day, but it was skidding through at a hustling pace to match Indias turbo-charged over-rate - they bowled 33.4 in the morning session, including an extraordinary ten in the first half-hour alone as Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin tied England in knots at a rate of knots.The devastating dismissal of Alastair Cook, in the last over of the fourth day, had left England fearing the worst when play resumed, and there was an inevitability about the identity of the first victim of the morning. Ben Ducketts rich strokeplay and inventive attitude will doubtless serve him well as his England career progresses, but in this situation - and particularly against his nemesis, Ashwin - those attributes had roughly the same value as an INR 500 note.Sure enough, having withstood 15 deliveries without opening his account, Duckett dropped to one knee in a bid to hit his way out of a corner, but succeeded only in gloving a sweep onto his thigh pad and into the gloves of the wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha. As he trooped disconsolately off the pitch, Duckett might as well have walked straight onto the England bench. His record against Ashwin alone in this series made grim reading - 40 balls, 15 runs, three wickets. Hell be back, but perhaps not in Mohali next week. Moeen Ali was the next to go, his technique against the spinners looking solid right up until the moment Jadeja got one to grip in the rough outside off, and accelerate onto his inside edge for Kohli to complete a lobbed catch at leg gully. From 75 for 0 after 50 overs, England were now in freefall at 101 for 4 after 74 - the flip-side of their siege mentality being that India were now camping as many as five close catchers under every new batsmans nose.Such close attention didnt bother Ben Stokes at first. He had been so solid in defence in the first innings, and continued his tried-and-trusted methods in a 33-ball stay. But, when India turned to the second new ball - and in the process, gave Jadejas fingers a rest after 25 overs on the trot had left him with the outstanding figures of 34-14-35-2 - the lankier offspin of Jayant Yadav conjured the ball of the match.A faster, flatter offbreak from around the wicket drifted as Stokes played back, then spat past his edge to clip the outside of his off stump. Stokes nodded his appreciation as the bowler hurtled past in celebration, and when Root was nailed by Mohammed Shami nine balls later, the teams might as well have shaken hands there and then.Root had once again been Englands most accomplished technician on the day. But, having survived an early reprieve when Kohli spilled a sharp chance at leg slip, he was pinned on the crease by a zippy nipbacker from Shami and sent on his way for 25 from 107 balls.There was time for one more breakthrough before lunch, as Adil Rashid top-edged an attempted ramp over the slips, to give Shami his second wicket of the innings, and the denouement came in a resigned procession after the resumption.Zafar Ansari completed a match every bit as ignominious as Ducketts when Ashwin skidded a flat offbreak into his off stump for a duck, before Jayant produced a carbon copy of Englands demise in the first innings, trapping Stuart Broad and James Anderson with consecutive lbws. Anderson completed his comeback Test with a king pair, remarkably the first by an England batsman for 110 years.That wasnt the sort of history that Cooks men had targeted at the start of the tour, but with three matches to come and some clear signs of life amid the ruins of todays effort, there will be chances to atone in the coming weeks. But a few correct calls at the toss would be a start. Cheap Predators Jerseys .C. United of Major League Soccer. United chose the defender in the second round of the 2013 MLS re-entry draft.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- UConn eased past Chattanooga to stretch its winning streak to 80 games and that has coach Geno Auriemma concerned.Napheesa Collier scored 23 points to lead the nations No. 2-ranked team to an 80-43 rout of the Mocs on Tuesday night.Katie Lou Samuelson added 19 points for the Huskies and the two sophomores combined to hit 19 of their 30 shots from the field.UConn has won 127 of their last 128 games and 52 straight at home.But Auriemma said he hopes those streaks will be tested when the Huskies face No. 15 DePaul on Thursday and four other top-25 teams in December .Cause we need to get our ass beat and soon and bad, so that some of our guys will come to realize that this is not as easy as they think it is, Auriemma said.UConn (5-0) led by just 12 points at halftime, before holding Chattanooga scoreless for more than 8 minutes during an 18-0 third quarter run. That gave the Huskies a 61-33 lead and put the game out of reach. The Mocs had just 12 points after intermission.Collier said she agrees with her coach that the Huskies didnt play tough enough in the first half, something that could come back to bite them in the coming weeks.Hopefully it doesnt take a loss to wake us up, she said.Gabby Williams scored 11 points and had 10 rebounds, the second straight game she has reached double figures both points and rebounds and the 11th double-double of her career.Four players finished with nine points for Chattanooga (3-6), including Chelsey Shumpert, who sat out the Mocs last two games with an ankle injury.UConn dominated underneath, outscoring Chattanooga 48-16 in the paint, and outrebounding the Mocs 44-32.The Huskies played without freshman point guard Crystal Dangerfield, who missed the game with concussion-like symptoms after bumping her head in UConns win over Dayton a week ago. Auriemma said she still needs to pass several parts of her concussion protocol before being cleared to play against DePaul.THE BIG PICTUREUConn: Without Dangerfield, the Huskies had to rely more on senior guard Sanaya Chong and junior Kia Nurse to run the offense. Nurse had 12 points and dished out four of UConns 21 assists. Chong finished with three points andd five assists.dddddddddddd.UConns winning streak is just the third 80-game streak in Division I basketball history, behind only its own program record of 90 straight from 2008-10 and the UCLA mens record of 88 consecutive victories from 1971-74.Chattanooga: Coach Jim Foster has put his team through a tough non-conference schedule that included losses to teams such as Florida, Indiana and Louisville. The Mocs play top-ranked Notre Dame next month and must guard against losing confidence while dropping games to the bigger names in womens college basketball.I think in the long run it has to help because you have to learn to play hard every night, Foster said. The program has had success within of the framework of our conference and getting to the NCAA Tournament, but it hasnt had success winning in the NCAA Tournament. Playing more teams that are going to be playing in March, you get an idea of what you have to be like.POLL IMPLICATIONS:UConns ranking likely wont be affected by this game. Barring any upsets, they should stay where they are until the Dec. 7 showdown with top-ranked Notre Dame in South Bend.HE SAID IT:Auriemma said hes coached several teams that had the ability to dominate all competition and others that won because they refused to back down from anyone under any circumstances.We gave up like eight layups in the first five minutes of the game, so were not that, he said. And yet we dont have that kind of talent that blows you away, like weve had in the past. So, that means that every single minute of every day, every practice, every game, theyve got to be tough, hard-nosed and I mean really tough. And thats hard to do.UP NEXT:UConn: The Huskies begin their December gauntlet of games against ranked teams when they face No. 15 DePaul on Thursday. The Huskies then travel to face No. 14 Texas on Dec. 4 before their Dec. 7 showdown with No. 1 Notre Dame. UConn also faces No. 9 Ohio State and No. 5 Maryland before January.Chattanooga: The Mocs visit Tennessee-Martin on Saturday, before returning home to face Stetson.
