The wicketkeeper's freaky knock of 37 off 59 balls, with the asking rate soaring above 10 per over, was the talk of captain Virat Kohli's post-match interviews after England levelled the three-match ODI series 1-1 with an 86-run victory.

Watch the series-deciding third ODI between England and India from 12pm, Tuesday on Sky Sports Cricket and Main Event.

Wood, though, insists the winner-takes-all nature of this match will offer Eoin Morgan's team invaluable preparation ahead of next year's World Cup.

Morgan himself played a captain's innings with his 53 off 51 balls, which went a long way to breaking Kuldeep Yadav's hold on England. "The more we faced him the easier he got to pick but you still have to play him..."

The absence of Roy, who has 416 ODI runs at an average of 52 this summer, is a setback for England as they seek to win their eighth 50-over series in succession.

Even so, Wood highlighted that the opposition are still of world class quality and they don't want to get carried away thinking too much about replicating a knock out contest.

"I don't why the margins [of victory] are so big". So it wasn't like there were 2-3 specialist batsmen remaining. Kuldeep (Yadav) might bowl really well again, (Umesh) Yadav might bowl well.

While it didn't concern the English team, Root did find it a bit surprising.

"I am not a huge fan of bilateral series - having a game like this is crucial for us", Morgan said.

With Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul batting in the first four positions, the latest that the former skipper can come into bat is No 5 but Suresh Raina is being seen as an enforcer in that position.

Hailed as one of the best ever finishers in limited overs, Dhoni in the past couple of years have struggled to finish a lot of high pressure games unless there has been top-order support from the other end.

It leaves Dhoni with either No 6 or 7 depending on where Kohli wants the big-hitting Hardik Pandya.

England will stay at number one in the International Cricket Council´s standings even if they lose their series-decider against India at Headingley on Tuesday.

Kohli said the team were not affected by the criticism of Dhoni.

"I think we started off well with the bat, it was a good wicket to play on".

However, Blind struggled for form and fitness last season and barely featured during Mourinho's second season at the club.

"We started pretty well with the bat".

The Leeds wicket is good for batting, though there can be a bit of a movement for the bowlers early on which brings the pacers into play. In this series, they didn't get a wicket in the first ten overs and haven't been able to cut the flow in the death either.

"Just emphasising similar points that we did after (a Twenty20 at) Old Trafford - have a look at your plan, make sure you´re clear then commit to it".
