Morgan explains reasons for England chopping Root

Five Tests follow the ODI series and with India's five-day squad still to be finalised, Kohli admitted Yadav and fellow wrist-spinner Chahal have given the selectors food for thought.

"Full credit to India - they completely outplayed us", said Morgan.

England batsman Alex Hales has been ruled out of the entire one-day worldwide series against India with a side strain.

Led by their openers, England need to keep playing the type of cricket they played against Australia, where they brought out some near-perfect performances.

And even though he accepts it is hard to find the time and opportunities to maintain his status as a multi-format player, he is adamant he will not give up on the Twenty20 game that is in danger of leaving him behind.

"It was tactical - we couldn't get a wicket, so I was chopping and changing trying to get a wicket, or find a wicket, trying to be as unpredictable as we could, but it didn't work", he added.

England's Test captain played for a googly which did not arrive while Bairstow fell for the opposite trick and neither have worked out a method of picking his variations.

While India will be buoyed by their 2-1 T20 series win, England, the top-ranked ODI team in world cricket, come into the series having crushed a below-par Australia 5-0 in their last bilateral engagement.

One day after losing a Fifa World Cup semifinal, the Indian cricket team have heaped more misery on hurting England sports fans.


Mark Wood's nought for 55 from six overs was costly after Eoin Morgan's side had failed to post a competitive total.

This series is built up as clash of the two best ODI sides who are both looking at next year's World Cup.

However, England still played well and if they'd got a few more runs on the board we would be sat here with a slightly different story going into this three-match one-day series.

It was another night of records for Trent Bridge's appreciative crowd but this time it was both the best figures by a spinner in England or against England anywhere in the world. While there has been a lot of focus on Indian wrist spinners, the visitors will be missing the services of Jasprit Bumrah, and possibly of Bhuvneshwar Kumar for the first ODI, who is in doubt with a stiff back.

"I " m fully confident in the ability I have in that format", said Root. One thing that generally we have been good at last couple of years is assessing things early on and planning an innings from there.

"It might be the case, it might not, but ultimately it's about winning the series and coming out of what has been an impressive white ball summer".

"India are in a place where they have some great depth in that (bowling) department".

"That's the way that you'd expect all of [Virat] Kohli's teams to play, so we're going to have to play extremely well to win it".
