Where did Virat Kohli get the call wrong?

Indian captain Virat Kohli went into the Test with 4 pacers and left out a specialist spinner. The move backfired immensely. Although, India did pick 20 wickets in this Test, but having a spinner would have helped them big time.

How did the Indians perform overall?

The only positives for India was the discipline showed by the three main pacers, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. Also Kohli's 25th Test ton showed that the captain has continued his fine form with the bat. The lows for India were the openers and the struggles of Umesh Yadav.
