Joe Root left frustrated after England ‘out-skilled’ by superior India

Joe Root lamented a shoddy end to England’s Test winter after his side were bowled out for 135 to hand India a comfortable win in the fourth Test by an innings and 25 runs. Victory confirmed a 3-1 series win for India and consigned the tourists to a third defeat in a row, all by glaring margins. The England captain was assured that the build-up to this fixture was one of reflection and learning from the mistakes made.
