Morgan explains reasons for England chopping Root

India vs England | 1st ODI Preview: Top two in face-off, will they switch places after series?

Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav and opener Rohit Sharma emerged as the heroes of the match with their outstanding and match winning performances.

Later, wicket keeper Jos Buttler (53) and all-rounder Ben Stokes (50) were among the top scorers.

If conditions stay the way they are, by the end of the next match England's No 1 ICC ranking may count for little and India could be made odds-on favourites for next year's mega event here. "We are going to have to play extremely well to win it".

"There are signs of Joe really getting to grips with the Test match team as a captain, and I think any experience like he has had over the past few days will definitely help him", Farbrace said.

Kuldeep (39 wickets in 20 ODIs at average 20.02) and Chahal (43 wickets in 23 ODIs at average 21.83) have proved their worth since making debuts but their ultimate test will be against England.

At the start of the 13th over, Joe Root was befuddled by a ripping leg break and was trapped lbw.

Once Kohli opted to field, the English script unfolded very much on similar lines as the T20 series, where things went downhill as soon as Kuldeep was introduced into the attack.

He said: "Lord's will be very similar to Cardiff, so the shift from ground to ground will be important, but that doesn't paper over the fact we need to get better at playing him".

Handed an eight-wicket defeat first up, the onus will be on England to make things happen in Saturday's second one-day game at Lord's.

"We have played some really strong cricket in one-day format and India are right up there as one of the best one day sides in the world".

Kuldeep took control in a devastating spell, claiming 3-7 from two overs with Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root all falling.

India´s Rohit Sharma celebrates scoring 100 not out, Trent Bridge, Nottingham, July 12, 2018. They added 73 before a wrong poor reverse sweep brought about Roy's downfall.

Morgan has led the limited-overs team since 2015 and recently took them to a 5-0 one-day worldwide series whitewash over Australia.

Morgan (19) then carelessly chipped Chahal to midwicket.

Stokes and Buttler then forged a 93-run stand to inch England near the 200-run mark before Kuldeep shot another bullet in opposition's line-up.

But with England hoping he would cut loose, Buttler´s glance off Kuldeep was well caught down the legside by wicket-keeper MS Dhoni.

For England, Ali bowled just 18 dot balls, conceding four boundaries and two maximums.

Kuldeep, who did not concede a boundary in his maximum 10 overs, struck again with his final delivery when David Willey holed out to KL Rahul.

Unfortunately, the chasemaster failed to close out the match and fell prey to Adil Rashid's bowling just before India's win.

Kohli, surprisingly, didn´t reach three figures too and was instead stumped by Buttler off Rashid.
