India vs England Ist ODI Preview

Joe Root dropped by England for India T20 decider as Ben Stokes returns

After beating host England in the three-match T20I series, Team India is on a high and now eyeing another dominant performance.

'I still think if England are to be successful in Twenty20 cricket Joe Root will play a big and magnificent part in that, ' said Farbrace.

Talking about missing out on playing in the IPL, Root said, "All the domestic tournaments around the world, they have to fit around playing for England".

And Wood is aiming to help Eoin Morgan's team reverse their fortunes in the three-match series by adding to Kohli's woes against England.

While India will be buoyed by their 2-1 T20 series win, England, the top-ranked ODI team, come into the series having crushed a below-par Australia 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement.

The England Test captain was dropped for the first time in any format in four years when Ben Stokes returned for the final Twenty20 global against India in Bristol and finds himself at a short-form crossroads. "You've got to always try to stay true to yourself", he replied.


"Whatever we do we don't go out and bat like we have to score 400 runs. Over the last couple of years, I've been fairly consistent because I've tried to play in that manner and tried to play a role for this team which benefits the group". I'm hungry to do so.

Kuldeep (39 wickets in 20 ODIs at average 20.02) and Chahal (43 wickets in 23 ODIs at average 21.83) have proved their worth since making debuts but their ultimate test will be against England.

"I enjoy the challenge, it's nearly like I've got nothing to lose".

He will continue to look for opportunities to play in domestic competitions around the world - and given England's schedule, a stint in the Big Bash could be an option this winter - but only if they do not impact on his England duties with the 2019 World Cup and Test captaincy his current priorities.

He "fully understood" the decision to leave him out in Bristol, however, but admitted his lack of opportunities to play T20 cricket has been "difficult".

"It's an exciting time, hopefully we can play some really strong cricket and I'm sure it will make for some really good viewing". "It's hard because of the limited opportunities I've had to play T20 cricket, but the thing that has always been at the forefront of my mind is that playing for England comes first".
