Joe Root's exclusion from T20 to fuel England test captain's desire

A side injury to Alex Hales will keep him out of the opening One Day International against India at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday (July 12).

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.

Joe Root's exclusion from the Twenty20 series decider against India on Sunday will fuel the England test captain's desire to improve going into this week's opening one-day worldwide between the sides, interim head coach Paul Farbrace has said.

Indian wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav made a flurry of records in the first ODI of the three-match series against England.

The home side had absolutely no answer to Kuldeep's mystery and Rohit Sharma was at his classy best as he went on to smash his 18 ODI century, continuing where he left in Bristol in the final T20I few days ago. "We all know that (Joe's) response will be to work harder, try harder and score more runs". England defeated Australia in the previous ODI series and also achieved the highest team score in ODIs when they scored 481/6 in the third ODI against Australian team. The left-arm wrist spinner befuddled them in the T20 worldwide at Old Trafford and here he altered the shape and momentum of the game in the sort of manner of which most bowlers can only dream. Thus, it isn't a regular sight when Root is shown the exit doors.

"Joe has the ability to hit boundaries".

"In 50 over cricket, if you don't get wickets it's very hard". In the end, he got out playing the sweep shot - which is fine, because that's a shot that he plays exceptionally well.

By finishing second in the 35.5km team time-trial around Cholet , Team Sky did that with typical efficiency. We just wanted to get that stage.

I still think, and I genuinely believe it, that if England are to be successful in T20 cricket over the next couple of years leading into the World T20, Joe Root will play a magnificent and big part in that. "We might need to sit in or a better way to play him...think Lord's will be different", Morgan said. Runs are your currency - that's what you're selected on.

Already reeling from the heartbreak in football World Cup, England sports received a double blow within 24 hours as India added to their agony with a crushing eight-wicket win in cricket on Thursday.

Showing enormous faith in Joe Root, Farbrace said that he has got all the skills and abilities required to be a successful T20I player.

"It was really important that we showed that we could learn very quickly from the first game and we showed that we are capable of beating India in tough conditions", said Farbrace.

Yet when Buttler went, Stokes seemingly did not know whether to stick or twist and instead got totally bogged down in the manner of an old-fashioned England batsman before this side threw off the one-day shackles.

Team India has been coming off a sensational form, following back-to-back T20I wins against Ireland and England during its tour of United Kingdom so far.
