  • England captain Eoin Morgan looks dejected after India win in Bristol

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 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement. With ICC Cricket World Cup scheduled to be held in United Kingdom in 2019, the three-match ODI series will give Virat Kohli and Company an ideal opportunity to know the English conditions that Indian cricket team are expected to encounter at during their World Cup stint at exactly same time next year.

Despite England racking up the highest ODI innings score in the last game played at Trent Bridge, Stokes took as many as 102 balls for his half-century. "I want to see us being as complete a side as possible in all three competitions, but I want to be a part of them". The performance was the best by a spin bowler against England in one-day cricket.

Among England's best wicket-takers in their post-World Cup surge, Plunkett was unlucky to not hold onto a return catch offered by Rohit Sharma. "It will be tough versus India", said Root on Wednesday. "I've proven in the past that I can perform in T20 cricket".

"Players learn from players and I am sure he'll be watching the way Morgs talks to the team, the way he goes about things, the way that he makes the decisions that he makes". "The key is when you have players in your side under pressure, the honest answer for me is your support and back your players publicly". In the aftermath of a gruelling Ashes campaign, he was rested during England's T20 tri-series in Australia and New Zealand in February, and also missed out on an IPL deal after being overlooked in this year's auction.

Morgan dismissed suggestions it was a drubbing but admits England failed to score enough runs.

He said: "It's unsafe to think too far ahead".


"But we all know Joe very well - he'll be spurred on by that and he will do all he can to make sure he is ready come Thursday's game at Trent Bridge".

"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's ODI series in England can be considered an important step towards preparing for 2019 Cricket World Cup, which is scheduled in England and Wales.

The poor run led to the 27-year-old's omission in favour of returning all-rounder Ben Stokes, but the change did little to help England as the hosts fell to defeat at Bristol.

India sit second in the rankings and Root expects a hard tussle following a 2-1 T20 series defeat.

Indian team is playing an ODI after a long gap as it last played an ODI during the finals of Nidahas Trophy where India defeated Bangladesh in March. Ultimately it's good marker to see where we're at.

"Certainly not our best day we've had here, full credit to India they completely outplayed us".
