Match Notes

  • Rashid and Chopra star again in stalemate

    The second Under-19 Test at Taunton petered out in a draw after India declined to chase a stiff target of 363 at almost five-and-a-half an over. The result means that the sides head to the final Test at Shenley on Sunday with the series level.

  • Rashid's allround heroics give England the edge

    Adil Rashid followed his first-innings hundred with a devastating 8 for 157 to put England in control at the end of the third day of the second Under-19 Test against India at Taunton

  • Rashid leads England fightback

    India's top order all chipped in, although none went on to make a big score, as the second day of the Under-19 Test at Canterbury ended with India with their noses just in front. In reply to England's 392, they closed on 260 for 3

  • Chopra strikes powerful century

    Varun Chopra led from the front for England Under-19, but the Indians kept them in check on the opening day of the second Test at Taunton
