The England Test captain was dropped for the first time in any format in four years when Ben Stokes returned for the final Twenty20 worldwide against India in Bristol and finds himself at a short-form crossroads.
Apart from gauging the English conditions, India would also like to get to the Top Spot in ODI Rankings which would be an added incentive for them to perform in the series.
Personally, Root will be under pressure to prove whether he has the game for limited overs.
"It would be nice [to play in various domestic T20 tournaments]", Root said. They are not hollow words.
But there can be little doubt that being dropped in the West Country hurt.
Whether Root can keep scoring white-ball... "He is such a big asset to all three teams and with him firing hopefully throughout this series we will see some really strong performances from him and long term for England that is a really good thing", he said.
"Whatever we do we don't go out and bat like we have to score 400 runs". I've been quite quiet this summer so far.
"I enjoy the challenge, it's nearly like I've got nothing to lose".
Root registered one half-century in the two Tests against Pakistan and averaged just 26 in the series against Australia which by his own high standards are poor returns. Runs are your currency and that's what you get selected on. "There's an element of trying to expand your game and develop certain areas but you have to play the situation in front of you". That's where I've been fairly consistent over the last couple of years.It's been slightly frustrating on occasions [this summer] but when you win 5-0 against Australia you've got no complaints.
Root's overall record in ODI cricket is outstanding. That's as much down to a lack of T20 game time as any issues with Root's ability.
"It is very important, since the World Cup is going to be played in this part of the world", said Sharma. "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". You can see it in the IPL, a number of guys have done extremely well.
Joe Root will "absolutely" be playing in the first game of England's three-match one-day worldwide series against India on Thursday, according to Paul Farbrace. "We've played some really strong cricket in the one-day format for a while now and India are right up there as one of the best sides in the world", he added.
Jonathan Crenshaw stabbed a 22-year-old Chicago man twice with the scissors before running away, according to Miami Beach police. Neither men dispute that Coronado was stabbed, but Crenshaw said he was attacked first, according to the arrest report.
Fernando Torres will join former Spain team-mate Andres Iniesta in the J.League next season after agreeing a deal with Sagan Tosu. Torres added: "I've always been treated really well in Asia and Sagan Tosu have made a great effort and I'm very grateful".
They were taken by helicopter to a hospital about 70 km (45 miles) away to join their team mates in quarantine for the time being. Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation , said the boys should not be blamed for the near tragedy.

Segura entered Wednesday's slate with a slash line of.329/.356/.467 (130 OPS+) with 24 doubles and 14 stolen bases. It's also well deserved after Segura's superb first half helped to anchor the Mariners infield and offense.
