Home skipper Kane Williamson celebrated “an outstanding performance” as New Zealand, who won the first Test by 10 wickets, claimed the second by seven wickets to wrap it up 2-0.
But Kohli – who was caught making a foul-mouthed outburst to spectators on day two – was disappointed by the performance of his side.
“We were completely outplayed in this series, and obviously did not play the kind of cricket that we do play as a team,” Kohli said. “We were not positive enough, we were not brave enough.”
The current holder of the ‘spirit of cricket’ award gave Williamson a very animated send-off in the first innings and he was caught on camera yelling an obscenity at a group of New Zealand fans on Sunday.
And he refused to answer questions about his behaviour after the Test.
When asked if his conduct had been appropriate, Kohli fired back: “What do you think?
“If you want to create controversy this is not the right place to be. I spoke with the match referee and he had no issues with what happened.”
In the two Tests India managed scores of 165, 191, 242 and 124, reflecting Kohli’s low contributions of 2, 19, 3 and 14.
