Despite the disappointment of losing the series decider, Farbrace said that England would take confidence from their Cardiff win into next week's ODI series, which arguably has far more significance for the two teams leading into next year's World Cup, and which England will begin as the No.1-ranked side in the world.

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shreyas Iyer, M.S. Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Siddarth Kaul, Shardul Thakur.

England had made a decent enough start when Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy put on 73 but once Kuldeep was brought on for the 11th over this was a different game, in sharp contrast to that record-breaking one here last month.

Kuldeep's career-best figures of six for 25 allowed England to only score a modest 268 in good batting conditions. Joe Root was hit in front of the stumps from the one that turned into him as well and he had no idea where the ball was going.

Eoin Morgan congratulates Rohit Sharma after the batsman guided India to an easy win. In the aftermath of a gruelling Ashes campaign, he was rested during England's T20 tri-series in Australia and New Zealand in February, and also missed out on an IPL deal after being overlooked in this year's auction.

When Kuldeep took five wickets in the first Twenty20 worldwide at Old Trafford England called for their old "Merlyn" bowling machine in a bid to work out how to handle this most unusual angle of attack.

Moeen Ali (24) and Adil Rashid (22) added a few quick runs ro help England cross the 250-run mark before they were all out in the final over with a delivery left. England, on the other hand, will run up a lead of 10 points at the top of the table if they win by the same margin, the ICC said in a release.

Kuldeep was not afraid to flight the ball and dipped viciously having the batsmen in two minds.

It said everything about the tortuous nature of Stokes contribution that he fell immediately after reaching 50 as Kuldeep returned to claim both Buttler and Stokes and, with the last ball of his spell, David Willey.

Bairstow didn't read the one that came back into him and was out lbw for 38 as well. Now, it's time for it to switch attention to the premier limited-overs format, as it takes on England in a three-match ODI series at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, starting Thursday.

Stokes and Buttler staunched the flow of wickets, with Buttler first to his fifty, off 45 balls.

Despite a brief partnership in the middle, England found it hard to get back into the game.

Buttler though continued his rich vein of form and smacked his 18th ODI half-century off 45 balls.
