Dhoni’s call to keep match ball triggers retirement meltdown on Twitter

Dawid Malan was next in line but was released by England on Saturday to play with the Lions against India A at New Road with a view on getting him into form for the Test series.

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

After claiming a comprehensive win in the first one-day, India lost the second one by 86 runs.

Rashid´s haul included two wickets for two runs in six balls as he dismissed both India captain Virat Kohli, who top-scored with 71, and Suresh Raina in the 31st over.

His latest hundred saw Root become England's outright most prolific century-maker in ODI cricket, with 13 hundreds from 110 innings at this level, surpassing by one the record he had shared previously with Marcus Trescothick. I don't think it will be the last I hear of it from the group - they've been hammering me.

Should Roy be unavailable it is expected that James Vince will come into the side with Billings there as squad cover for the match at Headingley.

Putin summit: US president under fire over poll meddling comments
One of Trump's own Senators accused the President of making America look like "a pushover" by refusing to stand up to Putin. Putin on Monday repeated the Russian denial of election interference, calling it "nonsense".

For a batsman as gifted as Joe Root, scoring a first century of the English summer in mid-July must constitute an unusually long wait.

Following the ODI decider, the teams head for a two-week break after which they return on August 1 to play the first of the five Tests.

Root said his England ODI skipper Eoin Morgan told him he had "made a fool of himself", and now cringes at the very mention of the gesture. "Feel like I've contributed last two games, hopefully a start going into the Tests". "It was just an absolute auto crash". He loves playing cricket, he loves being out there, you can see when he's on a cricket field he's fully engaged with what's going on. "Under-arm feeds, trying to get close to the ball, [it is as] simple as that and the mindset of either giving myself as much time as possible or smothering the spin".

But Joe Root, England's Test captain, had no doubt about Stokes being in the right frame of mind to play at Edgbaston despite a looming court appearance.

Root (100 not out) and Morgan (88 not out) shared an unbroken third-wicket stand of 186 as England won with 33 balls to spare.
