England batsman Joe Root feels India present a different challenge than their recent opponents including Australia and the home team will have to be at the top of its game to beat the Virat Kohli-led outfit in the three-match ODI series beginning on Thursday.
Root "fully understood" the decision to leave him out in Bristol, but admitted his lack of opportunities to play T20 cricket has been "difficult". After a good show in the T20Is against Ireland and England, India would now like to take the same kind of form into the 50 overs format of the game.

"It's hard because of the limited opportunities I've had to play T20 cricket, but the thing that has always been at the forefront of my mind is that playing for England comes first". "I know it was a very different side they played against but it is a really good marker to see where we are", said Root on Wednesday.
