Aakash Chopra after analyzing Team India's performance in the two-match Test series highlighted what exactly went wrong for them as a result of which the Virat Kohli-led team suffered a whitewash on Monday.

'This series was different': Aakash Chopra

Taking to the micro-blogging site, Chopra wrote that the Indian team under Virat Kohli competed in most Tests overseas but this series was different. The cricketer-turned-commentator/analyst then went on to add that India only participated in this series as their batting and the inability to dismiss New Zealand's lower-middle order let the top-ranked Test side down.

Even the fans were on the same page with the former Test opener but they had different opinions nonetheless. Here are some of them.

New Zealand win the series 

India who had begun the day at 90/6 were bundled out for 124 thereby, setting a 132-run target for the Kiwis for a series win. New Zealand in reply, saw off the new ball well and batted with a fearless approach as Tom Latham (52) and Tom Latham (55) added 103 runs for the opening wicket. Even though India struck back with three quick wickets it was too late as a defeat was inevitable by that point. Ross Taylor and Henry Nicholls completed the formalities as the hosts registered a comfortable seven-wicket win to win the series 2-0.
