England Series Useful World Cup Preparation, Says Rohit Sharma

England's captain Eoin Morgan in action against India during the third T20 in Bristol on Sunday

England's Joe Root said that India will pose a different challenge for the home side than Australia and the upcoming three-match ODI series should serve as a marker for their preparation for the 2019 World Cup.

"I fully understood the decision".

Personally, Root will be under pressure to prove whether he has the game for limited overs.

Talking about missing out on playing in the IPL, Root said, "All the domestic tournaments around the world, they have to fit around playing for England".

The Mumbai batsman had missed a chance to score a hundred when India took on Ireland in June this year after he was dismissed for 97 in the first of the two-match T20 series.

Ragin, who was charged with two counts of battery, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Current free agent and infamous former Cincinnati Bengal Adam "Pacman" Jones is back in the headlines.

The England Test captain was dropped for the first time in any format in four years when Ben Stokes returned for the final Twenty20 worldwide against India in Bristol and finds himself at a short-form crossroads. "He is such a big asset to all three teams and with him firing hopefully throughout this series we will see some really strong performances from him and long term for England that is a really good thing", he said.

On the other side, England, the top-ranked ODI team will come into the series after having crushed a below-par Australia 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement. I'm hungry to do so. "Over the last couple of years, I've been fairly consistent because I've tried to play in that manner and tried to play a role for this team which benefits the group". "I feel like I've got the bit between my teeth right now".

"You've got to always stay true to yourself", he said. 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 want to see us being as complete a side as possible in all three competitions, but I want to be a part of them". "In the past year or so we have played some good cricket, in and out of India, this tour brings another challenge for us", Rohit said.

Yuzvendra Chahal is a certainty as the wrist spinner and Kuldeep Yadav, who has created all sorts of doubts in the minds of the batsmen, may just come back into the playing XI as the Trent Bridge ground is much bigger than the one at Bristol.
