Match Notes

  • Lyth and Nelson rescue the draw

    Fighting centuries from Adam Lyth and Mark Nelson ensured England rescued the draw on the fourth and final day at Canterbury

  • India close in on victory

    India ended the third day of the first Under-19 Test at Canterbury in control despite a battling rearguard from England

  • Kohli hundred puts India on top

    A fine century from Virat Kohli, combined with half-centuries from Parvez Aziz and Tanmay Srivastava, put India Under-19 in a dominant position against the English counterparts at Canterbury

  • Lyth stars but England subside

    Adam Lyth struck a patient 64 for England Under-19s who put on a less than convincing batting display against their Indian counterparts in the first Test at Canterbury
