first_imgTalking PointIndia is still on top of the World Test Championship cycle. However, Kohli’s men were brought down to earth after they ran over oppositions at home and in West Indies last year.Notably, this is the 1st time Virat Kohli has been on the receiving end of a Test series whitewash as captain. This is the 3rd overseas series defeat in 4 tours since 2018 for the Indian skipper who was woefully out of form in New Zealand.The 2-0 sweep is also the 1st time since the 4-0 loss in Australia in 2012, India has been handed a series whitewash in Tests. India began the New Zealand tour on a high, winning the T20I series 5-0 but things have gone downhill since with the visitors losing the ODI series 0-3 and 0-2 in the Tests.While tall claims of being ‘the best Indian team of the last 15 years’ have been made in the past, India’s performances in SENA countries have been far from impressive. Apart from the historic 2-1 series win in Australia, India has been thrashed by South Africa (1-2 in 2018) and England (4-1 in 2018).Also Read: Arsenal Exit; Manchester United, Wolves in last 16Also Watch: Swearing-in Ceremony of Pallav Bhattacharyya as new Chairman of APSC held todaylast_img read more
