Kohli said after the match that the Indian players’ body language was “not up to the mark”.
“Our body language and intensity was not up to the mark, in the second innings we were much better. We were better in the second half of the first innings with the bat, not the first four batters,” said Kohli at the post-match presentation ceremony.
“We have to understand the things that we have done decently in this game and the things that we haven’t and as a side we are always looking to improve. England were far more professional and consistent throughout the Test match than we were,” he said.
