Riverside, Chester-Le-Street: India might have suffered a humiliating 0-4 loss in Tests but Virat Kohli on Friday said there was no embarrassment in the defeat against England and his team would now be able to play without pressure in the one-day series starting Saturday.
"There is no embarrassment. We didn't play good cricket and were beaten fair and square. If you play so much, this kind of phase happens. How you come back and fight is important. We are working hard and trying to turn things around," Kohli said.
"If it was before the tour began, there would have been pressure on us (to live up to world champions status). Now considering how the tour has gone, it's up to us to just focus on cricket and not anything else," he added.
