Morgan finds bilateral ODI series not interesting

Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra ChahalPrediction: England, with more balanced batting and bowling line-ups, looks more formidable than India. He is experienced and the idea was to take it deep.

For India, it is not just taking a good, hard look at the tournament favourites, but also making notes of the conditions at play in England, and identifying the sort of players that can fit in.

"It is very unfortunate that people just jump to conclusions very quickly".

According to Chahal, who was a rare Indian player to come out unscathed from the game with figures of 10-0-43-1, the wicket of Virat Kohli was the turning point of the game.

Before the start of the 46th over, the match was as good as over with 110 required off 30 balls. "We just need to be in the frame of mind to play well", the England captain said.

The in-form Rohit Sharma played a shot which hinted at complacency, while MS Dhoni waited too long to go for his big shots, and ended up becoming a target of boos from the crowd when he played a series of dot balls in a Liam Plunkett over, the 46th of the innings.

"This thing comes up whenever he (Dhoni) doesn't have a good day". It's a series decider here, which will be like a World Cup match - it's a must-win.

"I don't know what was said to him (when he changed bats)".

"He hadn't batted much, so this was a chance to get a knock". Seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has missed both matches due to a stiff back but bowled in the nets on Monday and could replace Siddarth Kaul.

While it didn't concern the English team, Root did find it a bit surprising.

Morgan added: "I thought Joe was quite significant in that, his rotation of strike, his calm head and we did our basics well". "Yes (it was surprising), but ultimately it doesn't really concern us", Root said.

Even though Vince has only been used in Test cricket since the last of his five one-day internationals against Bangladesh 18 months ago there are plenty of observers who consider his real strength to be in the white-ball game. However Dhoni failed to force the pace with India managing only 236 in 50 overs.
