Door not closed on my T20 career, says Root

India's captain Virat Kohli and India's Yuzvendra Chahal celebrate after Chahal bowls England's Joe Root during the international Twenty20 cricket match between England and India at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff

The Kohli-Rohit duo added 177 runs in 25.1 overs to seal the issue.

The ODI team have lost only four of their last 20 completed matches since September a year ago and return to Trent Bridge, where they set a world record 481-6 against the beleaguered Australians last month - Hales making 147 and Jonny Bairstow 139 in a 242-run win. The prospect of Kuldeep in whites in the first Test at Edgbaston with England's batsmen just as clueless as to when he is bowling his googly or not, is a worry. "That's a skill that Joe has - he has the ability to hit boundaries". He couldn't cope with wrist spin in both T20Is at Manchester and Cardiff.

England are the number one ranked ODI team in the world and whitewashed Australia 5-0 in their most recent series. In reply, men in blue chased the target easily as Rohit tied the ball with boundary and lashed out 15 fours and 4 sixes.

Rohit completed his century with an effortless hit down the ground off leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

The three-match ODI series will start on Thursday (12 July), and the first match of the tournament will be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. With the help of half-centuries from all-rounder, Ben Stokes and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler England scored 268 runs in 49.5 over.

Together, they added 83 for the fifth wicket showing signs of recovery but he dismissed the two set batsmen in quick succession to bring about the home team's downfall.

That Kuldeep was singularly responsible for England's batting collapse was evident more so because the next best figures were 2 for 70 in 9.5 overs by Umesh Yadav. His decision was not proving to be the best as England openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy were scoring at 8 runs per over.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit: Trump urges members urged to double defence spending

Donald Trump and Melania arrive at Theresa May's banquet amid protests
When the United Kingdom leaves the EU, May said that "there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", the BBC noted. But it was Trump's unnecessary broadsides against immigrants in Britain and Europe that really displayed his bigotry.


But the introduction of Kuldeep for the 11th over changed the course of the match and it took him just two balls to strike. Some played with the turn and some tried against the turn - both with dismal outcomes.

England's Joe Root had not been dropped for five years. Four balls later, Bairstow was trapped lbw via DRS after failing to read the googly.

England's top order is in brilliant form.

"That's obviously the situation Morgs (skipper Eoin Morgan) and the selectors found themselves in and they went with that".

"I still think, and I genuinely believe, that if England are to be successful in T20 cricket over the next couple of years leading into the World Cup, Joe Root will play a magnificent and big part in that".

Stokes and Buttler staunched the flow of wickets, with Buttler first to his fifty, off 45 balls.

For the 50-over series, Farbrace will revert to his role as assistant to Trevor Bayliss, who returns to the helm after some time taking in England Lions and county cricket. Buttler, whose dream run has continued since the start of the IPL, will like to continue his rich vein of form.
