Scorecard

It didn't take India long to wrap up the second Under-19 Test at Eden Gardens. England's inexperienced side was 140 for 6 overnight - still 123 runs behind - and they added only 17 runs in 13.4 overs on the fourth morning. Ambati Rayudu's side won the first Test easily too, and now leads the three-match series 2-0.

England finished up with 157, to lose by an innings and 106. The top-scorer yesterday was their captain, Worcestershire's Steven Davies, who made 66 and put on 74 with Moeen Ali. But Ali fell to the legspinner Piyush Chawla this morning after adding only five runs to his overnight 36, and the match was as good as over. Chawla finished with 4 for 43 from 29.1 overs, to go with his first-innings haul of 4 for 37 from 22.

The third youth Test is to be played at Jamshedpur from Feb 2-5. It is followed by five one-day internationals
