After the embarrassment of being dropped for England's last T20 global, the Test captain has been recalled for the three-match series between the countries ranked number one and two in ODI cricket, England and India. "I think India always want to be the best team in everything so it'll be a good test to really show them how good we are in our conditions".

"The thing that has always been at the forefront of my mind is that playing for England comes first", Root said.

Mr. 200 or Hitman, whatever you may call him, he is the backbone of any high scoring Indian innings. "In terms of ODI cricket, in the last one year or so, we have played some good cricket in and out of India". It can't have been an easy one for them to make but that is part and parcel of having a really strong squad. "You see guys come back from those tournaments with a huge amount of experience and a rounded way of looking at the game; a different take on certain aspects. It is always hard being left out and you never like that as a player", he concluded. Some of that is undoubtedly the media training that all global players are now given to ensure they don't ever say anything of any interest but it's also clear that Root has a deep desire for this group of England players to succeed. India had begun the tour with a good win in Manchester but went down in the second game at Cardiff.

"So whether it's making sure I get enough rest, or if there are global games throughout those tournaments, I'm going to have to miss out". Root said that the series would be a good indicator of how things stand for both sides with less than a year to go.

Execution blocked after company objects to use of its drug
Alvogen's midazolam was substituted in May for Nevada's expired stock of diazepam, commonly known as Valium. Today's execution would be the first time in 12 years that Nevada is carrying out the death penalty.

"Yes it does (present opportunities to grab spots) and ahead of a World Cup that's what you want". It can't be easy but it shows where we have come to in the last three or four years in this format. "It can't be a bad thing", he said.

England batsmen had massacred the Australian bowlers in the series.

While England will welcome back the previously rested Mark Wood - Jake Ball, like Hales, is expected to miss out on his home ground - and the head coach, Trevor Bayliss, will be resuming duties after a break, India's attack has been depleted by Jasprit Bumrah's finger injury and Bhuvneshwar Kumar suffering from a stiff back.

"It might be the case, it might not, but ultimately it's about winning the series and coming out of what has been an impressive white-ball summer". We have responded well to the situations that we were put in.
