Kohli wants India to do more than 'compete' after England series loss

By Agency

India captain Virat Kohli said being "competitive" was not enough after a 60-run defeat by England in the fourth Test at Southampton condemned his side to yet another away series loss.
Sunday's result, achieved with more than a day to spare, left England an unassailable 3-1 up ahead of the fifth and final Test at The Oval in south London starting on Friday.
For all India are the world's top-ranked Test side, they have now won just one of their last nine series outside Asia.
A target of 245 at Hampshire's headquarters proved beyond them, with India dismissed for 184 after tea on the fourth day as England off-spinner Moeen Ali, the man-of-the-match, took four for 71.
