    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. LeSean McCoy Jersey .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. Micah Hyde Jersey . U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield in Manhattan agreed that lawyers on both sides could make their formal requests by Nov. 8. A hearing is scheduled for a day earlier. Jordan Siev, a lawyer for Rodriguez, wrote in a joint letter to the judge from lawyers on both sides that MLB lawyers planned to ask that the lawsuit be dismissed. Lorenzo Alexander Jersey .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. http://www.cheapbillsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-jordan-matthews-jersey . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. MONTREAL -- Defenseman Nathan Beaulieu believes Montreals victory over Vancouver on Wednesday night should act as a wake-up call.Though flat for long stretches and outshot 42-21, the Canadiens did enough to beat the Canucks 3-0 for their eighth straight victory.Its probably the worst game weve played this year, said Beaulieu, who scored the winner in the second period. We definitely got away with one. We just werent sharp. We were on our heels. We sat back and didnt dictate the game. Its a lesson tonight.Its the best kind of wake-up call to get, one where you get the win. Tough game for us. Back to the drawing board.The NHL-best Canadiens relied heavily on goalie Carey Price to keep the winning streak alive. Price made 42 saves for his first shutout and sixth consecutive win of the season. He has 37 career shutouts.Were not going to play perfectly every game, thats just a fact, Price said. We definitely cant let ourselves get content. Were going to come out next game and try to get off to a better start.Torrey Mitchell and Alexander Radulov, into an empty net, also scored for Montreal. At 9-0-1, the Canadiens are the only undefeated NHL team in regulation time this season. Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher each had two assists.Ryan Miller made 19 saves for the Canucks. They are winless in five games and 4-5-1 overall.The first half of the game we deserved a better fate, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. Maybe the guys were shooting a little too fine, knowing who was in net. They thought they had to be perfect on their shots. Adolphus Washington Jersey. Hes a good goalie, we knew that coming in. We had a good effort today creating shots. I believe if we play like that every night, well win our share of games.Price kept Montreal in the game to start the second period, robbing winger Sven Baertschi from close range. The visitors led 24-3 in shots before the Canadiens struck midway through the second.Following sustained pressure by Vancouver, Beaulieu scored on a fast break for Montreal. The defenseman cashed in a rebound at 12:22 after Brendan Gallaghers shot from a tight angle bounced off Miller and landed in the crease. The goal was Beaulieus first of the season and it came on Montreals 11th shot.The Habs doubled their lead in the last minute of the second period on Mitchells team-high fifth goal of the year. Mitchell came storming down the wing on a 2 on 1 with Phillip Danault, who found his streaking teammate with a cross-crease pass. Miller, who was playing the shot, had no chance on the goal.Game notes The Canadiens are 7-0-1 in their last eight home games against Vancouver. ... Montreal has scored first in 8 of 10 games this season. .. The Canucks are on a six-game trip. ... Montreal recalled Daniel Carr and Joel Hanley from the AHLs St. Johns IceCaps.UP NEXT:Vancouver: At Ottawa on Thursday night.Montreal: At Columbus on Friday night.
