Team India was humiliated in the third Test against England at Headingley. The visitors earned a brilliant win in the game at Lord’s. However, this match was just not the game and the Indian side had no answer to their opponents. Virat Kohli and co. just could not cope with what their opponents threw at them in this match. It was quite evident from the very beginning after King Kohli won the toss and opted to bat.
Getting out for just 78 on the very first day of a Test match is always bad. Then, going into bowl and not picking up wickets can add to the misery as well. This is something that Team India faced right through the Test and eventually, once England had done their part, came out to bowl a second time. The visitors lost the game by an innings and 76 runs.
The Moment Where Virat Kohli Kept His Cool In The Press Conference After The Loss To England
India was defeated rather easily in this game. Virat Kohli and his team had no answers to the oppositions’ questions. Something similar could be seen in the press conference after the game. The Indian skipper kept calm and looked rather mellow. He wasn’t his same arrogant self and rightly so. The team had been beaten badly.
Just like how Joe Root had accepted his mistake after the last Test match, Virat Kohli too tried to take some blame. He was further analyzing a few things as the questions went on, when the media did go a bit too far at times.
Despite that, King Kohli kept his cool and the video was shared around on Social Media platforms like Twitter. Below is the Tweet-
Remarkable self-control by @imVkohli.
In a sense, it’s a classic Twitter moment. Person with zero knowledge & zero self-awareness tries to give random gyan to actual practitioner.pic.twitter.com/P3FoLVxllD

What Next For Team India Heading Into The Fourth Test Match Against England With The Series Tied At 1-1?
The Indian side need to forget about this match and focus on the upcoming two games. If they live too much in the past and do not address the issues in hand, they will end up losing this series. It is not something and this has happened in the past as well. It will be upto Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to get the boys back in the right frame of mind to compete against England.
This is more than just a normal series now. It’s WAR!! The teams know it and will want to prove their worth to their fans, who will have a lot of hopes from them. It will be rather embarrassing for either side to lose it from here. They will surely not want to end up on the losing side.
The fans in India will be hoping that Team India can deliver when it matters. Virat Kohli will be focused on improving his own form as well. He finally managed to score some runs in the second innings at Headingley. Hopefully, he can carry it forward into the upcoming games. Let’s wait and watch how Team India responds now!!
