The total was India’s third-lowest in Test matches played in England:

Kohli was surprised after finally winning the toss but his decision to bat first at Headingley didn’t work out as his team never got settled in with the bat. KL Rahul, who scored a splendid century in the previous Test at Lord’s, got out for a duck in the first over and the wickets kept tumbling thereafter.
