    This is going to be England's biggest challenge. With the weather we're having, these pitches couldn't suit India more. They are going to spin - even in the Test matches, they will turn a little bit.

  3. 'We have to improve on playing spin'

    England captain Eoin Morgan: "All credit to India, they completely outplayed us today. Kuldeep Yadav had a pretty good day at the office. Today we were off the mark.

    "He extracted more turn out of this pitch than any other spinner. Practising and coming up against guys like that is rare. Our playing against spin will have to improve.

    "Between now and the World Cup we need to expose our areas of weakness. This seems to be one of it because it's so rare we come up against two wrist spinners. It's great opportunity to test ourselves."

  4. 'As clinical as it can be'

    India captain Virat Kohli: "It was as clinical as it can be. Our wrist spinners know they have the skill to make an impact. Kuldeep was outstanding. I don't think I've seen a better ODI spell in a while.

    "We want Kuldeep confident because we know he can be a match winner. These two guys, since they've come in the team, they've been the difference for us. They're making the impact in the middle overs.

    "There might be a few surprises in there [the Test team]. Kuldeep is making a strong case for himself. Looking at the English batsmen struggling against them, we might be tempted to do that."

    Before we set sail, let's get a quick reaction from the captains, who will be experiencing rather contrasting emotions this evening.

    Joe Root was left out of the deciding T20 but was restored to the team at number three today. However, the Test captain made only three before being deceived by Kuldeep, the first of two wickets in the India spinner's second over, Bairstow soon following for 38 after a review.

    But the match turned with the introduction of left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the 11th over. He struck with his second delivery and Jason Roy will not want to see his dismissal again. Here it is for the rest of us though.

    England need to take a leaf out of the way they played in Cardiff. They played Kuldeep Yadav with a lot more clarity and knowledge.

    Not long for England to wait for their chance to atone for this defeat. The second of the three matches takes place at Lord's on Saturday.

    India have thoroughly outplayed England. This pitch has spun from the word go and Kuldeep Yadav was a nightmare for England. India were brilliant in the field too and it was a clinical display from Rohit Sharma. It's looking ominous for this series for England.
