Southampton: India suffered a 60-run loss in the fourth Test on Sunday after being dismissed for 184 while chasing a victory target of 245 set by England.

India skipper Virat Kohli said his team cannot be satisfied with just competing overseas and it has to learn the art of crossing the line in pressure situation.

It cost India the series 3-1 and Kohli said that they need to understand situation whilst at the crease and not after the game.

“We can look at the scoreboard and say we were only 30 or 50 runs away, but we have to recognise that when we are in the midst of the situation, and not later. We know that we have played good cricket but we cannot say again and again to ourselves that we have competed,” Kohli said.

“When you come so close, there is an art of crossing the line as well, which we will have to learn. We have the ability, which is why we are getting close to a result. But when a pressure situation comes, how we react to it, is something we have to work on a bit.”

Like in South Africa, India started off the series lagging 0-2 but fought hard to reduce the deficit by clinching the third Test.

England’s Moeen Ali took nine wickets for 134 runs as India succumbed twice to his off-spin. Kohli praised the off-spinner, he also defended R Ashwin, who couldn’t work similar magic in this game.

“Ashwin tried his best. He pitched the ball in the right areas. He didn’t get the results he would have intended. We all try to do well. Some innings it doesn’t come off,” he said.

While Virat Kohli on Saturday added another record to his statistics as he became the first Indian to score 4000 runs in Tests as captain. Virat Kohli achieved the milestone during the fourth Test match against England at The Rose Bowl cricket ground in Southampton on Sunday.
