England v India: Highlights from the first ODI at Trent Bridge

England captain Eoin Morgan looks dejected after India win in Bristol

On a high after an impressive Twenty20 series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against England in a three-match ODI series, which can be termed as a "dry run" ahead of next year's World Cup.

In the first match of the three-match T20I series, Hales struggled to connect and dismissed cheaply against India.

This was a throwback, with England prodding around and seemingly failing to pick the variations of the 23-year-old Kuldeep, who now seems sure to be fast-tracked into India's squad for the five-Test series that begins next month.

Injured England batsman Alex Hales was ruled out of the opening one day worldwide against India at Nottingham's Trent Bridge on Thursday, with Dawid Malan replacing him in the squad. England are the No. 1 team, a far more unsafe proposition in the one-day game, and they will be encouraged that India's pace attack is a little weakened with Bumrah out injured and Bhuvi an uncertain starter.

"Any experience he has had over the last few days will definitely help him".

"I'm sure he was bitterly disappointed to be left out. 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 to come Thursday's game at Trent Bridge".

Fox kicks off Comcast bidding war with £24.5bn Sky bid
The battle for Sky is raging while a separate tussle for Fox's entertainment assets simmers on between Comcast and Disney . Of the assets he's seeking to acquire from Fox, Disney chief executive officer Bob Iger called Sky "a real crown jewel".

"I'm sure those two will have lots of conversations about the role of being England cricket captain whether it's with red or white ball".

For England, Alex Hales has been ruled out with a side injury and his place has been taken by Ben Stokes. "That's a skill that Joe has - he has the ability to hit boundaries".

"It is important in low-scoring games on tough wickets, you need people who can manipulate the strike, who can play spin bowling well, and can keep you in tight games". He might not have the power of a Ben Stokes or a Jonny Bairstow but strong cricket shots in T20 cricket will get you where you want.

It is a reputation built on fearless, attacking cricket that has seen England win 46 out of 69 ODIs since a disastrous 2015 World Cup.

However, Root hasn't been in the best of forms in the shortest format of the game.

Yet if the rest of England's batting are going to play Kuldeep as badly as this - and worryingly he has got Root out twice in three balls so far on this tour - then they might have to re-think their decision to leave Hales on the outside.
