Farbrace says Root can learn from one-day captain Morgan

Farbrace says Root can learn from one-day captain Morgan

Hales averaged 48 as England lost their Twenty20 series against India 2-1.

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.

Virat Kohli and his troops will look to continue their T20I form into ODIs as India lock horns against England in the first of their three-matches in Nottingham on Thursday. "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".

"In 50 over cricket, if you don't get wickets it's very hard".

Similarly, third-ranked South Africa face the challenge of blanking Sri Lanka 5-0 in an away series to ensure they do not slip behind New Zealand even as mid-table sides Bangladesh (seventh), Sri Lanka (eighth) and the West Indies (ninth) will be vying for important points during this period.

Nepal gained ODI status at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe earlier this year while the Netherlands regained it earlier by winning the ICC World Cricket League Championship.

Root has had his issues of strike rate in the T20I form, and thus he had to be overlooked by Eoin Morgan. Watch all the latest videos from the England Cricket Team and England and Wales Cricket Board.

Man sells 31-foot long fingernails to Ripley's in Times Square
Before Williams, Christine Walton held the title from 2011 with nails measured at 19 feet and nine inches until she cut them off. They were only fingernails, but to Shridhar Chillal , cutting them off probably felt a bit like cutting off his own hand.

It is a reputation built on fearless, attacking cricket that has seen England win 46 out of 69 ODIs since a disastrous 2015 World Cup. The right-hander hasn't scored any fifties in the last seven matches for the England side.

For India, the make-up of their playing XI will be their main concern.

However, India will consider that move carefully as Kohli has an outstanding record while batting at number three but things not so different at four either.

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shreyas Iyer, M.S. Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Siddarth Kaul, Shardul Thakur.

Buttler was still able to complete a 45-ball fifty, albeit with just five fours, including a stylish cover-drive off Umesh. His decision was not proving to be the best as England openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy were scoring at 8 runs per over. And it could run and run unless England's batsmen can find some way of reading the words Kuldeep Yadav is writing for them.

Though both England and India will play without the service of their best pace bowlers - Jasprit Bumrah and Chris Woakes, respectively - there is enough quality in the match with the ball too. Since 2016, the English batsmen have raked up most number of runs when it comes to the 50-over format - 14,297 (1,533 runs more than the second highest team).
