England coach backs Joe Root to bounce back post T20I omission

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

"He will be spurred on by that and he will do everything he can to make sure he is ready for Thursday s game at Trent Bridge".

Kuldeep, who did not concede a boundary in his maximum 10 overs, struck again with his final delivery when David Willey holed out to KL Rahul.

Rohit Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav inspired a dominant India as the tourists demolished England by eight wickets in the first one-day worldwide at Trent Bridge. But having watched enough of his peers struggle in Manchester, he may have made a fair estimation of what the left-arm wristspinner was truly capable of.

Yadav took control in a devastating spell, claiming 3-7 from two overs with Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root all falling. He simply walked from one side of MS Dhoni to the other, at leg slip, and watched Roy clumsily self-combust.

England will get the chance to redress the balance in the one-day internationals, which start at Trent Bridge on Thursday. The rigid planning may have stemmed from Alex Hales's recipe to blunt Kuldeep.

The Yorkshireman added: "Becoming captain of the Test side I had those hard decisions to make and ultimately you are trying to pick the best team you think is going to win on any given occasion". Maybe I just went out in Manchester without a plan and couldn't get going. Jos Buttler played a few exceptional shots but was dismissed by Kuldeep.

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

Root's omission would have seem unthinkable two years ago, when he was the glue in the England T20 line-up that came so close to victory in the World T20 in India, and prior to the series Farbrace insisted Root was a fixture in the side.

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.

It saw England slip to 82 for three and Morgan (19) walked after bringing up England's 100, giving his wicket away after being caught at midwicket by Suresh Raina off Yuzvendra Chahal.

It is vital runs keep flowing for him in ODIs ahead of next year's 50-over World Cup on home soil, a tournament in which Morgan's No.1-ranked men are heavily fancied. However, Stokes and Buttler added some important for the fifth wicket before Kuldeep sent Buttler back to pavilion for 53 runs. 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.

With the ODI World Cup scheduled to be held here next year, the three-match series will also give Kohli and his teammates a fair idea of the playing condition in England.

"So if you are not picking the ball (from the hand), then there is a huge problem".
