The Specsavers series is now over and the visitors (India) ended their tour with a 118-run loss on the final day of the fifth Test at The Oval.
Despite a 1-4 defeat in the Test series against England, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that the final scoreline of 1-4 is not a true reflection of how his team performed in the Test series which concluded yesterday.
He said, "I am not saying this is not a fair scoreline. I think 1-4 scoreline is a fair one as England played better than us but we were not outplayed barring the Lord's Test match."
India lost the Lord's Test match by an innings but bounced back to register a win in the third Test in Nottingham.
The 29-year-old cricketer also shared that this series has been a great advertisement for Test cricket.
"This has been a great advert for Test cricket. The fans will come and watch if both teams play for a win. The basic idea was to go out there and play the cricket we are supposed to do. England also don't go for draws and they played fearless cricket and so did we. That is why you won't draws in these kind of series," said Kohli
Virat was the star player for India in the series. He scored 593 runs in the series, at an average of 59.30 with two, three half-centuries and a top score of 149.
