England will have no qualms about selecting Ben Stokes for next month's first Test against India, even though the match could finish just a day before the all-rounder's trial for affray begins.

'It was definitely the most satisfying ball I've bowled because he is one of the best players in the world, ' said Rashid.

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. Victory in this series represents a significant step for this England side, given the calibre of India's one-day outfit.

Test skipper Root hit the winning boundary to reach three figures and end India's run of nine straight bilateral ODI series wins. "I've not heard the end of it, it was literally the most embarrassing thing I've done on a cricket field", Root told the media.

Dhoni had come under fire during the England ODI series for slow scoring rate.

Joe Root celebrated his classy ODI century by dropping his bat to the ground in true "mic drop" fashion.

India is set to play the ICC Cricket World Cup in England next summer and chief selector MSK Prasad had earlier said MS Dhoni will remain the team's first choice for his slot.

"It's two very good sides - when they're on top, they really are on top, you keep your foot on the throat and don't let opposition up", he added.

Root, speaking before India unveiled that squad, said he'd gone back to basics in working out how to play Kuldeep rather than use the Merlyn spin-bowling machine for practice. "Feel like I've contributed last two games, hopefully a start going into the Tests".

'He wants the ball all the time and wants to be involved in what's happening.

"You'd think if you were going to do a celebration like that, you'd have smacked it 30 yards.it was just an absolute auto crash".

Root, stumped off a Yuzvendra Chahal no-ball on 69, went to his century when he pulled Pandya through midwicket for his 10th four in 120 balls as England won with 33 deliveries to spare.
