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.

You would be forgiven for wondering if Niki Lauda is in the pay of the British Grand Prix promoters. He says statements regarding Lewis Hamilton allegedly smashing up an office, and speculation on the Englishmans relationship with Nico Rosberg, were due to a misunderstanding.Maybe so. The stable door may have been bolted but the horse, known as a nice little runner in media terms, has long since bolted to the motor sport websites and galloped on from there to the wild blue yonder. In the light of the misunderstanding, these same media outlets are hardly likely to say: Oh, I would no longer bother with the British Grand Prix if I were you. Nothing going on there. Lets go watch a tennis player smashing his racquet or a footballer tripping over a blade of grass.Sports editors have already tasked their correspondents with finding F1 stories, preferably about the home hero if hes got a chance of winning. Hamilton fits the bill perfectly, thanks to tales of his rearranging the furniture in Baku and that controversial finish in Austria last weekend. Its manna from Heaven or, in this case, from the Mercedes motorhome. This stuff is a sports writers dream. Some people may disapprove of the resulting hype, but thats the way of the media - and always has been.In 1996, Damon Hill was the main man. Having won the British Grand Prix for Williams in 1994, only to lose the championship a few months later to Michael Schumacher in that controversial incident in Adelaide and then collide with the Benetton at Silverstone in 1995, Damon came to his home race a year later having just won the French Grand Prix. If he repeated such an easy victory at home, he would be three wins clear of Williams team-mate Jacques Villeneuve in their fight for the 1996 title.The papers were blithely saying that Hill was a shoo-in for the championship. When he put his Williams-Renault on pole, a sixth win of the season seemed certain. If anything, the British Grand Prix backstory was almost too nice. Searching for colour and drama, a tabloid newspaper discovered that German flags had been ripped from a caravan belonging to a group of Schumacher fans. Neither officials nor the police knew anything of the incident but Hill was reported to be quick in distancing himself from the actions of his alleged supporters.Such a mature and mellow attitude was typical of the atmosphere that year. Villeneuve and Hill got on well; there was harmony within Williams (unlike in 1995, when Frank publically referred to Damon as a bit of a prat). But, as we know, motor racing is not that simple. Hill, mysteriously never in the reckoning in this race, eventually spun off at Copse thanks to a seized wheel bearing. Villeneuve won. By Monday morning, the newspapers had changed their tune. Was Hill ever going to win this title?There had been a similar theme ten years before at Brands Hatch when Nigel Mansell appeared to be fighting his Williams-Honda team-mate, Nellson Piquet, just as much as Ayrton Senna in the Lotus-Renault and McLarens Alain Prost.dddddddddddd There was additional media emotion attached to Frank Williams making his first public appearance since his near-fatal accident four months before. Similar to Hill 10 years later, Mansell had answered British sports writers prayers by winning the previous race in France, only to add spice to the British Grand Prix by failing to beat Piquet to pole - but then hammering the Brazilian in the race.And yet all of this was tame compared to forty years ago. On a scorching afternoon at Brands Hatch, the crowd went into riot mode when it seemed James Hunt would be barred from taking the restart after his McLaren had been damaged in a first-corner shunt. The fact that the pile-up had been caused by the dastardly Ferrari drivers hitting each other added further heat to an already tense season which exploded in very un-British terms as beer cans rained onto the track. Hunt was eventually allowed to start, went on to beat Niki Laudas Ferrari and score a hugely emotional win -- only to be disqualified at a later date and heap even more controversy onto a season in which the 1976 British Grand Prix had played a significant part. The F1 media was in seventh heaven.Twenty years before that, sports reportage had been a more gentle affair in which the only noise generated by F1 writers was the clacking of their portable typewriters. It was as if they had become attuned to not expecting a British driver to win the championship. Ever.Even though Stirling Moss had produced an immaculate win at Monaco, the 1956 title seemed to be going the way of Juan Manuel Fangio for the fourth time (the championship had only been running for seven seasons).The British Grand Prix at Silverstone would sum up Mosss luck. Driving a works Maserati, Moss claimed pole and led every lap until the fuel tank split (dealt with, would you believe, by stopping for more fuel!) and he finally succumbed to a broken rear axle, but not before setting fastest lap (worth one point). Fangios Lancia-Ferrari took the win but the humble Argentinean was quick to pay tribute to the Englishman 18 years his junior.The respect was mutual. Moss and Fangio had been teammates at Mercedes the previous year. And there were, on occasions, team orders laid down by the legendary Alfred Neubauer. This was a colossus of a man who ran the team like clockwork, personally organising everything from quiet hotel rooms for his drivers to how they would run their races, assuming they were in front. Which they usually were.We could do with Herr Neubauer in the pits today. Not so much to control Hamilton and Rosberg but to scare the living daylights out of inventive journalists salivating over what Lewis might or might not have done behind closed doors.
