No matter where our Indian cricket team is playing, the Indian cricketers get an vast support from their Indian fans wherever they go.

England opener Jason Roy will have a fitness test before play on Tuesday to see if he can take part in the third and deciding one-day global against India at Headingley.

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's 100 not out was his second successive unbeaten century, helping England win the series 2-1, after he started the India tour with innings of 0, 9 and 3.

The three-match series is level at 1-1 after England won the second game by 86 runs at Lord's on Saturday.

He bowled India captain and star batsman Virat Kohli (71), as well as dismissing Suresh Raina, on his way to three for 49 in a maximum 10 overs.

Now Durham quick Mark Wood hopes England, who will aim to win a maiden World Cup title when they stage the 2019 edition, will respond well to the pressure if Tuesday's winner-takes-all contest and lay down a marker head of next year. Kuldeep's statemate and a wrist spinner himself, Piyush Chawla, feels Root got the confidence to go on the backfoot because the pitches were a little slower.

"To come into a big series like this and perform how we have as a side is great".

"It was something that I immediately regretted", Root said.

Morgan added: "I think we were outstanding".

MS Dhoni scored 42 of 66 balls and was jeered again at Leeds.

"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 vehicle crash".

Billings will be available for Kent's match with Surrey at The Spitfire Ground on Friday as this is the last white-ball match before the five-match Test series with India begins. Instead Root and Morgan held back waiting to see if the ball would go for four.
