It was just an absolute vehicle crash - Root regrets bat-drop celebration


But the introduction of fast bowler Liam Plunkett, one of five Yorkshire players in England´s XI, helped India break the shackles.

"We are going to pick our best team and make sure we go into that series with the strongest squad", Root said.

The three-match series is level at 1-1 after India won the first ODI at Trent Bridge by eight wickets and England triumphed by 86 runs at Lord´s on Saturday.

"I've not heard the end of it".

"To come into a big series like this and perform how we have as a side is great".

This latest hundred was also Test skipper Root's 13th in ODIs, taking him past the England record of 12 he had previously shared with Marcus Trescothick.

Vince, dropped from the Test team at the start of the summer, scored over 500 runs in Hampshire's victorious Royal London One Day Cup campaign this summer and may have the chance to add to his previous four ODI innings due to Alex Hales' injury and Dawid Malan's involvement with England Lions.

"I felt like I was picking him (Kuldeep) fine and when you look at it for what it actually was, both games my movements weren't quick enough and I wasn't getting close enough to the ball, either going forward or back".

"The composure he's shown, particularly in the last two games, is the Joe Root we know and trust, He's been outstanding even when he's been low on runs - around the group he's been the same guy, hungry for runs, hopefully that continues for the rest of the summer,"said Morgan".

The question of England's mental approach was at the forefront of Root's thinking as he turned his focus to the Test series.

Root (100 not out) and Morgan (88 not out) shared an unbroken third-wicket stand of 186 as England won with 33 balls to spare. "It was just an absolute vehicle crash". But chief coach Ravi Shastri has dismissed the speculations and said that the idea was to show the ball to bowling coach Bharat Arun and get a fair idea of the conditions."MS wanted to show the ball to Bharat Arun".

"It was the most embarrassing thing I've done on a cricket field".
