On this Root said, “It was something that I immediately regretted.”

Embarrassed with himself, Root said, “I’ve not heard the end of it, it was literally the most embarrassing thing I’ve done on a cricket field.”

“I don’t think it will be the last I hear of it from the group — they’ve been hammering me,” he shared the reaction of his teammates.

Meanwhile, the most encouraging thing for England was Root’s returning to his own form who had earlier struggled against world class left-arm wrist spinner, Kuldeep Yadav.

Well, Kuldeep had Root stumped by MS Dhoni for a duck in the 1st T20 at Old Trafford and then snared him lbw for just 3 during India’s 8-wicket victory in ODI series opener at Trent Bridge last week.

Further, Root was not the only batsman to struggle against the bowler, as he made a comeback with the figures of 6 for 25 which is the best performance by any spinned against England in ODIs.

Well, it was a different story in his last 2 ODIs when Root’s extraordinary performance which made England win the series.

As Kuldeep has been included in India’s squad for 1st 3 fixtures of a five-match series that begins on August 1, England can again face the threat of Kuldeep.

Now Root said that he was determined and work out on how to play Kuldeep rather than use the Merlyn spin-bowling machine for practice.

Root said, “I didn’t use Merlyn on this occasion. I looked at the three balls I faced and got out to — one thing that’s very easy to do is over-analyse things, over-think things.”

“I felt like I was picking him (Kuldeep) fine and when you look at it for what it actually was, both games my movements weren’t quick enough and I wasn’t getting close enough to the ball, either going forward or back.”

“The best players of spin in the world, their footwork is always sharp and when that contact point is there, you’re as still as possible,” said Root.
