Starts on Tuesday.

Personally having no tests matches in England in July is not very English and completely crazy. But the Indian Boys are in town and no doubt will provide a sterner test than the Aussies.

England IMO are the favourites for the WC next year and not being biased but can see the only two teams whom can challenge them are India and Pakistan.

With the weather currently be interested to see how English batsmen handle the spinners of India.

Looking forward to it but not as much as the test matches.

This will be very close in all three formats I think, we need a couple of weeks of cloudy humid weather in August to help us in the tests though!

Should see some high scoring, provided, as you say, England can handle the spinners.

Just seen this score. Looks like a comfortable win. Always felt England’s key weakness is in their bowing.

Let’s hope the weather continues like this as spin will play a massive part in all three formats.

Watched the last two overs after the football finished. Hales kept his nerve superbly.

Funny how India's bowlers found it harder to bowl when they couldn't pull out of their delivery stride :)

Should be a great summer, two very evenly matched sides in the shorter format.

I'm a cricket fanatic but have to admit I totally forgot about this one until I walked into Priya's takeaway in Cranford where they had it on the big screen. Went home and watched a couple of overs, then put on WC and completely forgot again until I came on this thread! I'll have to have a word with myself!

Watched it, tense game, two well matched sides, India probably stronger in this format. Really looking forward to the 50 over games, T20 doesn't do it for me much.

Just turned over from the F1. I've never seen so much grass on a wicket!

England took three amazing catches other than that didn’t ever look like getting a wicket. Think that is one area they really need to focus on for the ODI series.

Comfortable win for India in the end.

Really don't get the selectors obsession with Jake Ball, I've never rated him in any format and don't think he's good enough for international cricket.

ODI series coming up should be a cracker, those short boundaries at Trent Bridge will be tested on Thursday!

Agree about Ball.. why didn't Stokes bowl instead of him towards the end?? Expect both sides to hit 400 plus on Thursday..

Always felt we we a few runs short as it proved. Nothing in the track and I've always maintained that our batting is as good as anyone but bowling is pretty average. We'll just have to get more runs. :)

Welcome to the summer of Spin :)

Root is in awful form.

Typical England isn't it. We wait several summers for India and it coincides with our driest summer for decades.

More like a home series for India.lol
Great isn’t it ��

More concerning is the form of Root. His confidence in white ball cricket must be shots to pieces. Wasn’t picked up in the IPL. Had a poor series against Pakistan and a must win final game in th T20 he was dropped. Morgan has also been poor.

England rely heavily on the opening partnership and what then Butler.

Not seen this England team been beaten so comprehensively for a long time. The Indians didn’t have to break sweat in the run chase.

The big drawback for England IMO is that they have no bowlers whom look like taking wickets. Onto Lords on Saturday. I’ll be there.

Quite difficult to take wickets when you're aiming for the wide crease.

Stokes and Buttler out cheaply. 216-5 after a good spell earlier.

Agreed. Terrible by MSD. His approach in this innings sucked the life out of what could have been a close game. I'd be fuming if I paid my hard earned money to watch someone not trying. He should retire

Kholi, Dhoni, Sharma, Tendulkar, Ghandi, Indian Bee. Your boys took a helluva beating. A helluva beating.

I didn't see the India innings but what a joke if Dhoni was playing for his personal milestone, did he want the prestige of getting his 10,000th run at Lords?

Great to see Root anchor the innings, proves he still is more than worth his place in the ODI side even if it does mean that one of the big guns (Hales) has to miss out.

I don’t genuinely think he was surely ?!? It was just lacklustre by him and his mate

just back from Lords. I literally look like a burnt toast.

- English fans around me were shocked Morgan chose to bat first
- Great to see Roots in the runs
- I didn't clap when that guy proposed ....
- Loads of tipsy Indians
- When Kohli got out lots of Indians literally left the ground - why?
- Borefest last 15 overs.
- A few people in India made a lot of money in the last T20 game of the previous Indian tour.
- Nothing untoward happened in this game

England were better than India today in all areas.

Roll on Tuesday.

Seemed to battle his way through it then. :) Equaled the most ODI hundreds for England and still only 27.
