England were relentless says Kohli

Edgbaston, Aug 04: We all knew that Team India lost the match against mighty England here at the Edgbaston cricket stadium

In this regard, Captin Kohli said some interesting things during the presentation ceremony.

"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 after the match.

The captain added, "Our shot selection could have been better. We definitely need to apply ourselves better with the bat, but England came back superbly and we need to take the positives and move forward.

The second Test begins in Lord's on August 9.

"(I) haven't had the time to speak (to the team) but it'll be about taking the positives. We can be proud of the team for starting like that in a big series."

Kohli praised the lower-order batsman for showing grit and said India need to be fearless to make a comeback in the series.

"There is a lot to learn from the lower order in the first innings, Ishant and Umesh got stuck in the middle. Ishant showed character here, Umesh hung around with Hardik again," he said.
