He made his India debut against England in 3rd T20I at Bristol on Sunday and finished with figures of 1/43 at an economy of 10.75.

Asked if the conversation with Root is among the toughest he has had as captain, Morgan said: "Yes".

Playing his 500th global game, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (32 not out off 24 balls) then came to the crease and added a quick 32 runs off 24 balls with Kohli. "I don't think we have to play a completely flawless game every time (to beat them) - we proved that at Cardiff".

Despite the disappointment on Friday, the visitors are still in contention for their sixth consecutive T20I series' win, which is part of an unbeaten run stretching back to September 2017. Krunal Pandya, who had earned a maiden call-up to the national side was thrilled after the victory and bid adieu to the team after sharing the dressing room with the stalwarts of Indian cricket. Having the composure to play quite a mature innings, as he did, and then towards the end, he's not known as a big hitter but anybody who watched the game at Trent Bridge will realize he hits the ball quite a long way, even yorkers. "To get over the line has boosted our confidence".

A highlight of this short partnership was their running between the wickets, with pushes even to the 30-yard circle returning two runs, and they took the score past 100 in the 16th over.

"I am always learning the game and making sure I am always learning from my mistakes in every game I play in", he told reporters at Bristol.

"We picked him the other night, but I don't think we played him very well", he added. We would have loved to restrict them for fewer runs.

Morgan and acting coach Paul Farbrace had a hard call to make before a ball was bowled, to accommodate the return of fit-again all-rounder Ben Stokes - and in the end it was Test captain Joe Root who was dropped.

"I bowled my wrong 'uns in the ideal areas". We're going to have to devise a plan, what's our best option in the middle order as well.

In the next over, Buttler took Umesh Yadav (1/48) for two back-to-back fours to set the tone for his team before Roy turned on the heat.

Rahul, who looked in great touch, was sent back by pacer Jake Ball, courtesy of a brilliant catch from Chris Jordan. The guys are taking this as an opportunity.

Perhaps they were helped in this regard with Adil Rashid (1-29) coming on to bowl.

"Ben comes into the squad for the next game". The knock he played was outstanding. We've made calls like this in the past, but we hope we'll make it for the betterment of the team - and put out our strongest XI. He's played a lot for us.

Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 global, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye.
