"I'm sure he was bitterly disappointed to be left out because he wants to play every game for England and he wants to show he's a high quality player in all forms of the game, but we all know Joe very well - he'll be spurred on by that and he'll do all he can to make sure he's ready come Thursday's game at Trent Bridge". With cricket's blue riband tournament scheduled to be held in United Kingdom in 2015, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a drift about the conditions that his men are expected to encounter at exactly same time next year.

The more conventional leg-spin of Yuzvendra Chahal did for England captain Eoin Morgan before Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes led a partial recovery that looked as if it might lift England towards something like par.

In his column for the Times of India, former Indian batsman VVS Laxman wrote, "Team India came through another test of character with flying colours by clinching the T20 series against England with a convincing win in the decider".

"I still think, and I genuinely believe it, 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". This was also the best figures by a spinner in ODIs in England. He will, in all likelihood, be the missing jigsaw puzzle at the top of the order for skipper Kohli.

Comcast is expected to raise its offer for Sky
Wright's predecessor had previously indicated the deal could go through if Sky was ultimately sold to a third party, like Disney . Or, if Comcast is reluctant to forfeit a stake in Sky, it could drop its bid for the bulk of Fox's entertainment assets, he said.


Suresh Raina has returned to India XI after three years.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has failed to recover from a stiff back and his place has been taken by Sidharth Kaul who is making his debut.

Morgan has led the limited-overs team since 2015 and recently took them to a 5-0 one-day global series whitewash over Australia. Buttler, whose dream run has continued since the start of the IPL, will like to continue his rich vein of form.

It was always likely Hales would be the odd man out as soon as Stokes regained his fitness even though the Notts batsman hit two centuries in record breaking recent one-day matches on his home ground. Kuldeep has claimed 20 wickets in his last eight ODIs while Chahal scalped 24 wickets in his last ten outings. Since that World Cup in Australia-New Zealand, this English batting line-up has accumulated 300-plus scores 31 times in 69 matches, inclusive of 23 wins. It certainly won't be a walk in the park for India.
