Winchester College prospect Sebastian Morgan hit an unbeaten 33 on his England Under-19 debut, but was later unable to halt a brutal run assault that swept India B to a seven-wicket victory with 23 overs to spare.

Morgan, the youngest player in the tour party for the pre-World Cup Quadrangular tournament, helped salvage a desperate start to the 50-over international in Vijayawada - four of the top five England batsmen bagging ducks in a disastrous 19-4 start, writes Mike Vimpany.

Luke Benkenstein (69), whose father Dale was previously Hampshire's head coach at the Ageas Bowl, led a fightback which, with the aid of Morgan (33 not out) and Academy all-rounder Eddie Jack (17) saw England rally to make 201. Hampshire's Dom Kelly didn't play.

But when they shared the new ball, Jack and Morgan found themselves on the receiving end of a relentless India onslaught, the pair conceding 78 runs between them off the initial eight overs.
Morgan did, at least, manage a breakthrough by taking a catch, but the hosts swept to a seven wicket win in the 27th over.
