This will be one of them.
"All of our plans are about positive thinking, and we shouldn´t veer away from that", explained Morgan, who has overseen a resurgence in England´s limited-overs cricket since their embarrassing first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup.
"No not at all", reiterates Morgan. This will be one of them.
"Yes (it was surprising), but ultimately it doesn't really concern us".
The mention of Kuldeep Yadav is important.
Virat Kohli's Indian team may have blown a shot at reclaiming the No. 1 spot in the ICC ODI Championship following a sloppy defeat at Lord's on Saturday, but defeating England in the decider tomorrow will give them the series and extend a very good overseas record in bilateral series: should they win on Tuesday at Headingley, India will complete their tenth consecutive bilateral ODI series wins, but the statistic to underline will be that it would be the fifth overseas series win in a row. Although he took three wickets at Lord's, he conceded 68 runs, as Joe Root scored an excellent century to anchor the innings after Morgan went against type by batting first. To not doubt their processes as that, in turn, will have a detrimental effect to their execution. "When he does well, people call him the best finisher ever, and when things do not go well, people pounce on him", the Indian captain seemed trifle irritated with the kneejerk reactions from fans and critics alike. "But you´ve got to play him well still", said Morgan of Kuldeep. But you still have to play him well. I thought Joe (Root) was quite significant in that - his rotation of strike, his calm head.
"We thought it was hard on the top and soft underneath, the rain wasn´t significant enough yesterday (Friday) to have any consideration of sweat on top or soft on top", he added. "It was much better". "The difference between 20 for six was that it seamed for about half an hour or so, but not much more".
India were chasing a competitive target of 323 on a Lord's track that slowed down and for once the top order failed with a lot of responsibility on Dhoni.
In the end it proved to be a freaky innings from India in the second one-day game at Lord's as they didn't as much as display they were making an effort of going for the target of 322.
Chasing England's 322-7 to close out a series victory with a game to spare, India were skittled for 236 with No 11 Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed off the final ball of the 50th over on Saturday (Sunday NZT).
Batting at No 6, Dhoni arrived at the fall of Kohli's wicket for 45 with India needing 183 off 23 overs, an asking rate of just under eight per over.
