KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Given the trial is expected to last between five to seven days, Stokes, a dynamic middle-order batsman and lively seamer who is also one of England's best fielders, could well miss the second Test of a five-match series that starts at Lord's on August 9. "I'd like to think that this one could still be a big margin for us".

Just about the only jarring note of Root's innings was when he dropped his bat deliberately after reaching three figures, a gesture more associated with rock stars and stand-up comedians.

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.

England were thrashed in the first ODI of the series last week after wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav picked up a six-for in Trent Bridge.

For England, it was Joe Root's 13th ton and a great partnership of 186* with captain Eoin Morgan that saw them chase down 256.

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

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.

In an exceptionally dry English summer, India's spinners - which include Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin, third and fifth on the ICC Test rankings - will pose a major threat, but Root said he had focused on the basics of footwork rather than using the spin-bowling machine Merlyn to practise against.

Vince´s frustrating England career has seen him repeatedly get out when well set and Tuesday was a case in point when he ws run out for a run-a-ball 27, although it needed a brilliant one-handed take by wicket-keeper Dhoni, from Hardik Pandya´s throw, to complete the dismissal. "I felt like I was picking him [Kuldeep] fine and when you look at it for what it actually was, both games my movements weren't quick enough and I wasn't getting close enough to the ball, either going forward or back".

"They are obviously favourites because its their home conditions", India paceman Shardul Thakur said.

Root urged the Test side to follow the England one-day team's desire for individual and collective improvement, which was fuelled in part by a woeful first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
