India lost the fourth test match against England by 60 runs. Indian captain Virat Kohli addressed the media post match. He said, “When we look at the scoreboard in the end, all we really see is a 30-run, or a 50-run margin but as I said, we need to recognise the situation whilst we are in the midst of it, rather than afterwards. We know we played good cricket but we can’t keep telling ourselves that competing against the opposition is enough - because crossing the finish line is also an art, which is one we will have to learn. Because, we have the ability, which is why we are close to securing results and we also have belief in that ability. But when we face pressure situations, how we react, is something which we need to work on more. It is something we all are ready to work on. We don’t feel for a second that we won’t play with intensity in the final test match, because we have enjoyed playing cricket here. We haven’t taken playing in England as a burden. We will, once again, in the last test match, do what we have done in all the matches, as this is an opportunity to bounce back and to learn, on how to deal with pressure situations in the future. So, we will try to put things right in the final test match.”
