Joe Root says 'mic-drop' celebration his 'most embarrassing' moment

Root, who scored his second century of the series, stitched a 186-run stand along with captain Eoin Morgan as the two kept the Indian bowlers at bay.

Ben Stokes will play in the first Test against India even though it could finish just 24 hours before the start of his court case. "I'd like to think that this one could still be a big margin for us". "Over the course of the last two games, obviously it worked nicely".

It is only the first time that Kohli was clean bowled by a leg-spinner in 200 ODI innings and 112 Test innings.

In the last couple of matches, Root showed that he was ready to go on the backfoot and play Kuldeep late if needed, giving indications that he wasn't scared of the left-armer. The best players of spin in the world, their footwork is always sharp and when that contact point is there, you're as still as possible.

The question of England's mental approach was at the forefront of Root's thinking as he turned his focus to the Test series.

After Morgan won the toss, Rohit Sharma, who scored a superb century during India's eight-wicket win in the series-opener at Trent Bridge, struggled to make two off 18 balls, his innings ending when he flicked Willey to Wood at deep square leg.

"Today I thought it was clinical, right from the get-go".

"Luckily, over the past year we've managed these situations really well". It was a good starting point for this team to kick-on after what's been a hard winter. "We want to play tough cricket and we know the English side will provide us with that", he added.

As for his most recent hundred, there was one moment Root wanted to quickly forget.

Normally the most understated of cricketers on the field, Root said it was a spur of the moment decision as he got carried away by hitting a four to win the game taking him to exactly 100.

"I've been playing against Rashid since U-19 and it was a terrific ball, so it's just one of those balls that you have to take in your stride and say "Wow".
