Joe Root must consider T20 future after being dropped for India clash

India vs England

Virat Kohli and Co will now take on England in the 5-match ODI series.

"Not having two good games and then coming back to play such an innings, that is special".

Only moments of brilliance from England kept India in check.

Now, after scoring just 61 runs off 54 balls in four Twenty20 internationals, Root and England need to consider whether his omission is just temporary or whether it is in everyone's best interests for it to become permanent.

"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. They have been great", he added. "India never really got away from us, but we struggled to take wickets (during the chase)", said Morgan. "(But) Jason (Roy) and Jos (Buttler) were brilliant up front and nearly gave us a licence to allow ourselves to think about 220", he added.

A second wicket inside powerplay and the introduction of Adil Rashid slowed India a tad going forward.

Kohli too marched into the 40s with the help of two sixes in successive overs, but an fine caught and bowled from Jordan gave England a breakthrough against the run of play. 225 or 235 would have been more of a hard chase (on that ground).

Dhoni got to the 50-mark when he snaffled the risky Jason Roy caught behind off debutant Deepak Chahar's bowling. Although England managed a score of 198 at the expense of 9 wickets in 20 overs, the first innings was all about Hardik Pandya and former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Just a ball after, Bairstow followed Stokes towards the pavilion.

A successful chase never looked in doubt for Virat Kohli's side, with the skipper himself contributing 43 before Hardik Pandya smashed 33 from 14 balls to take his side over the line.

Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 worldwide, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye. This was the right-hander's third century in the game's shortest format, making him just the second player to make three tons.

Farbrace, England's assistant coach, also believes the hard-nosed manner in which Root was axed by limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan will help the Yorkshireman develop a more ruthless streak when it comes to his captaincy of the Test team. But the expected players failed to keep rocking in the ground.

"I think India made a mistake by dropping Kuldeep Yadav".

Kohli said: "The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding - I thought they would end up getting 225 or 230, which would have been tough". We backed up something and the guys produced the goods for us. Led by Pandya's four-fer, the bowlers paved way for India to claw back into the game after a blistering start from the English openers.
