IND vs ENG: We need to apply ourselves better, says Virat Kohli
Indian captain Virat Kohli urged his team to show more character after losing the first Test match by 31 runs at Edgbaston
India skipper Virat Kohli on Saturday rued the lack of application and poor shot selection by his batsmen after their meek surrender paved the way for an England victory in the opening Test here.
"I think it was a great game. Glad to be part of such an exciting Test. Lot of times we came back, showed character there. But England were relentless. They made us work hard for the runs. It sets up the series nicely and gives us what we need to do going forward," Kohli said. "Our shot selection could have been better. We definitely need to apply ourselves better with the bat... need to move forward."
