An elated Root celebrated by dropping his bat to the ground - the "mic drop" gesture more associated with rock stars and stand-up comedians than cricketers.

India will have to find the right balance in the ODI side and get its "act together" before the World Cup next year, said skipper Virat Kohli after his team's 2-1 loss in the three-match series.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of England's eight-wicket stroll at Headingley was the fact that India's spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, were kept wicketless on a surface that had aided Moeen Ali and, in particular, Adil Rashid.

Root's 100 not out was his second successive unbeaten century, helping England win the series 2-1, after he started the India tour with innings of 0, 9 and 3.

He bowled India captain and star batsman Virat Kohli (71), as well as dismissing Suresh Raina, on his way to three for 49 in a maximum 10 overs.

With England's limited-overs summer now finished, the first of five Tests against India starts on Wednesday, 1 August at Edgbaston.

After England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss, India initially found runs hard to come against accurate bowling from Mark Wood (one for 30 in 10) and Willey, who were given some early assistance by overhead cloud cover.

"It feels fantastic", Root told Sky Sports.

Joe Root has now scored more ODI hundreds than any other English player in history, and this 2nd hundred in as many matches secured the series for the home side. "I'm surprised that his turn has reduced over the years, but this one was an unbelievable ball", said Kohli who is now looking forward to the five-Test series.

"I think this has an impact for the World Cup", Wood said. "I don't know why the margins are so big, maybe it's just two really good teams and when they are on top the quality really comes through", he added.

On Tuesday, with wickets falling in regular intervals, Dhoni remained calm and managed to score 42 runs off 66 balls.

"It was a auto crash", he said. Instead Root and Morgan held back waiting to see if the ball would go for four.
