Indian opener Rohit Sharma belted an unbeaten 137 as they thrashed England in the first ODI in Nottingham.

The match started with both Jason Roy (38) and Jonny Bairstow (38) launching into Yadav and debutant Siddarth Kaul (0/62 in 10 overs) with a flurry of boundaries.

While Kuldeep and Chahal were making inroads with the ball, Vaughan had taken to Twitter and stated that the Indian team management ought to give Kuldeep a chance in Test cricket, something they have done sparringly in the past.

But neither could break the shackles and both fell to Kuldeep, who was just the third overseas spinner to take five wickets in an ODI in England after Sri Lanka great Muttiah Muralitharan (5-34 at Lord's in 1998) and India's Suraj Randiv (5-42 at Old Trafford in 2011).

This brought Stokes and Buttler together at the crease, and they put on 93 runs for the fifth wicket.

Ben Stokes hung around and scored a patient 50 before holing out in the deep. However, Farbrace - who has been standing in for the head coach, Trevor Bayliss, during the T20I series - said that Root remained a shoo-in to play in the first ODI against India at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

Eoin Morgan congratulates Rohit Sharma after the batsman guided India to an easy win. However, on the other hand, English spinner Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, who destroyed the mighty Australians in the recently concluded ODI series, should find things harder against India's strong batting line-up that include in-form Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and MS Dhoni.

Despite Root's recent struggles, Farbrace is confident the versatile batsman still has a major role to play in England's red and whit-ball squads.

India reached the target of 269 in 40.1 overs with 8 wickets to spare. His match figures read 10-0-25-6.

His latest haul - the best by any spinner in an ODI against England - helped India dismiss the hosts for 268 in Nottingham, with opener Rohit Sharma then making 137 not out as the tourists won with almost 10 overs remaining. Let us look at a few reactions from across the world.

Harry Wilson signs new Liverpool contract
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Naby Keita and Fabinho are still bedding down after their first week with the club. Liverpool have rejected a second loan offer from Celtic for forward Harry Wilson, according to Neil Jones of Goal .

"After that, Rohit batted very long and finished the game for us". Those wrist spinners in the middle overs are going to be tricky. They did it in South Africa in the middle overs.

Even Kuldeep's spin twin Yuzvendra Chahal (1/51 in 10 overs) was not exactly economical.

"I think Morgs has done an unbelievable job with this team, where he's taken it to is remarkable and actually a nice little learner for me to see how he has gone about it", Root said.

Eoin Morgan: " Certainly not our best day out here. I want to see us being as complete a side as possible in all three competitions, but I want to be a part of them. "Kuldeep had a pretty good day at the office. To be honest, between now and the World Cup we need to expose our areas of weakness and this is one of them", he said.
