India's predicted playing XI for the ODIs against England

These are nevertheless interesting times for Root, who on Sunday was the one to make way for Stokes in the T20 side and has only one half-century in six ODI innings this summer.

England have just completed a whitewash of the Australians and while the Aussies were not a full-strength team, especially in the bowling, it is the win in the final One-dayer where Jos Buttler along with the last two batsmen got 90-odd runs to take England home that showed the character of this England team.

"It's risky to think too far ahead", said Root, who will hope to retain his place in the ODI line-up after being dropped for the final T20 match. "Certainly, this English team is going to put us under pressure every now and then", he said.

"The last series was high-scoring".

"It would be nice [to play in various domestic T20 tournaments]", Root said.

"We are just enjoying the game rather than thinking about what has got to happen". I'm hungry to do so. "You've got to always try to stay true to yourself", he replied. "There's an element of trying to expand your game and develop certain areas but you have to play the situation in front of you".


Root's overall record in ODI cricket is outstanding. He averages 49.82 and has eleven hundreds, the second most of any England player in history, but his T20 game has stalled since the World T20 in 2016 when he played a blistering knock of 83 from 44 balls against South Africa. "I've proven in the past that I can perform in T20 cricket", he said. But while he accepts that is an issue, he is adamant that his priority remains England's fortunes in the 2019 World Cup and Test cricket. "It's hard because of the limited opportunities I've had to play T20 cricket, but the thing that has always been at the forefront of my mind is that playing for England comes first".

"It might be that having an experience of playing some kind of domestic cricket somewhere would be very valuable, finding a different environment, learning from different players, a few different coaches".

With the ODIs set to begin on the 12th of July, 2018, players and fans from both the countries would be very excited to see what both the sides have in store for us.

Part of Root's problem is that, as a key part of England's Test and ODI side, he has little time to appear in the domestic T20 leagues that might provide him with greater experience.

"In the past year or so we have played some good cricket, in and out of India, this tour brings another challenge for us".
