England is considered one of the toughest places to tour for the Indian team as they have failed to win a Test series in the country in the past 16 years. In 2014, Team India had another forgettable tour of England as they suffered a 1-3 series loss. The series is also remembered for India’s premier batter Virat Kohli’s dismal run as he scored just 134 runs in 10 innings. Kohli’s rough patch raised questions about his place in the team with fans asking for him to be dropped immediately.
