England assistant coach Paul Farbrace said Test captain Joe Root will get better at his job by learning from his one-day counterpart Eoin Morgan.Root has been in charge of England's Test team for a year, since the 2017 series against South Africa, but the white-ball sides are captained by Morgan.Morgan has led the limited-overs team since 2015 and recently took them to a 5-0 one-day worldwide series whitewash over Australia.

When: The match is scheduled to played on July 8 at County Ground, Bristol. "They have been great", he added. That wicket and the consequent quiet, with Pandya promoted ahead of MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina, left India 44 to get in four overs.

A six brought up Roy's half-century from 23 balls - the joint second quickest for England in T20s - and the hosts looked set for a total in excess of 200.

Kohli was sent back to pavillion by Chris Jordan at the score of 43 but the Indian captain, along with Sharma, had already done the damage to England.

The 27-year-old Roy hit the first six of the match in the fourth over, a princely down the ground shot at long off before tonking Siddharth Kaul (2/35) for another maximum in the next over to show his intent.

Hardik Pandya, who came in for Kohli, immediately found the boundaries and India needed just 29 from the last three overs to win the match. But Hardik Pandya ran through the middle-order and finished with four wickets as England eventually stuttered and stumbled their way to 198/9 in 20 overs. Just a ball after, Bairstow followed Stokes towards the pavilion.

Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 worldwide, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye.

However, at the other end, Rohit was making the most of the short boundaries and Virat Kohli appeared in ominously good touch as he caressed the ball to the midwicket boundary to get off the mark. 'He is our best batsman and a fantastic player in all forms of the game'. In T20 you need players who can manipulate the strike and can keep you in the entire game and that is a skill that Joe has.

Kohli said: "The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding - I thought they would end up getting 225 or 230, which would have been tough".

"I think India made a mistake by dropping Kuldeep Yadav". The character we showed is something we're very proud of. We backed up something and the guys produced the goods for us.

Having been taken for 22 runs in his first over - sixth of the innings and last in the powerplay phase - it was a test of Pandya's temperament as well. "They kept up with the rate, and then it was a position in the 16th or 17th over they could take the game away from us which is disappointing".
