Joe Root must consider T20 future after being dropped for India clash

Get live cricket score of India vs England 3rd T20 from Bristol here. Jason Roy blasted his third fifty while Jos Buttler started off brilliantly as England raced away to a great start

Root made way for the return of Ben Stokes, and England's premier all-rounder will also retake his place in the 50-over team at Trent Bridge on Thursday, the start of a series that will be a stern test of England's status as favourites to win the World Cup on home soil next year.

"I'm fully confident in the ability I have in that format", Root said. "I've proven in the past that I can perform in T20 cricket", he said.

When asked about being dropped in Bristol, he said: "I want to see us be as complete a side as possible in all three formats".

"I don't have any fears about it".

"We have seen England against Australia and they were really high scoring games, it's gong to be crucial to see where we are as a team".

Now that the T20 series has been done with and both teams have flexed their muscles and showed a glimpse of what to expect, comes the ODI series. Some of that is undoubtedly the media training that all worldwide players are now given to ensure they don't ever say anything of any interest but it's also clear that Root has a deep desire for this group of England players to succeed. You have to take that.

"Until there's a really good block for me to go and play T20 cricket somewhere in a domestic tournament, it's going to be hard for me to get a string of games together and really put that case across". I feel like I'm an experienced enough player now at global cricket to be able to do that.

Kuldeep (39 wickets in 20 ODIs at average 20.02) and Chahal (43 wickets in 23 ODIs at average 21.83) have proved their worth since making debuts but their ultimate test will be against England. The priorities at the minute have got to be that white-ball World Cup next year and as Test captain, we've got some big series coming up and the Ashes next summer. "All the domestic tournaments around the world, they have to fit around playing for England, whether that's making sure I get enough rest, or obviously if there are global games throughout those tournaments, I'm going to have to miss out".

Yet, so determined was Root not to miss out on the short-form game and all the rewards that come with it, he convinced management he still had a role to play even though England have an embarrassment of big-hitting riches.
