Joe Root admitted to receiving some friendly abuse from his England team-mates after his "embarrassing" century celebration at the end of the third ODI against India at Headingley.

"I think two of your best batsmen (Rahane and Rahul) are not being looked after properly".

Talking about the game, England thrashed India by eight wickets to win the series 2-1.

England opener Jason Roy may miss a one-day worldwide series decider against India that Mark Wood views as ideal preparation for next summer's World Cup.

That England match with India starts at 12.30pm on Tuesday.

"We started poorly (but) as the series has gone on we have improved, it is a benefit of playing a bilateral series". Your top four have to be the best players and you got to persist with them. I think the tone was set by the bowlers early on, David Willey and Mark Wood were on the money.

The three-match series is level at 1-1 after India won the first ODI at Trent Bridge by eight wickets and England triumphed by 86 runs at Lord´s on Saturday.

While the Indian team was leaving for the Headingley Stadium on Tuesday for the decider One-Day International (ODI), a few fans gathered outside the hotel to have a glimpse of the stars.

The bat drop caused a stir for cricket fans around the world, and they reacted to Root's amusing gesture.

"He caught me off guard completely".

And that made the comprehensive manner of their victory all the more satisfying for Morgan's men.

Left-arm quick Willey took three for 40 in his nine overs and leg-spinner Rashid three for 49 in his maximum 10.

Rashid claimed the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli for 71 with a classic delivery that pitched on leg and turned sharply to hit off stump. Dhoni asked for the ball from field umpires Bruce Oxenford (Australia) and Michael Gough (England) as the teams walked back towards the pavilion.

"It was something that I immediately regretted". "He may turn it around as he has been a great player for India but at the present he is not turning it around enough and this has been going on for more than a year", said Ganguly. No matter where our Indian cricket team is playing, the Indian cricketers get an vast support from their Indian fans wherever they go.
