Yorkshire's Root was dropped for the final Vitality IT20 against India in Bristol on Sunday, when the tourists secured a seven-wicket win to wrap up the series.
Jos Buttler top-scored for England - who have the chance to level the series at Lord's on Saturday - with 53 but they failed to deal with Kuldeep's spin before toiling in the field.
While the football heroes went down in a blaze of glory in Russian Federation, fighting till the final whistle against Croatia, it was abject surrender by their cricketers at their bastion, Trent Bridge, in the opening One-day worldwide.
Jose Mourinho heaps praise on former Manchester United target Ivan Perisic
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes England can feel optimistic about their future, despite losing to Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals.
Indian wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav made a flurry of records in the first ODI of the three-match series against England.
"But we all know Joe very well - he'll be spurred on by that and he will do all he can to make sure he is ready come Thursday".

KL Rahul's stunning gives them a happy headache and if India follow the T20 template, it will be a demotion for Kohli to number four. Suresh Raina is likely to win the nod for a return to the middle order ahead of Shreyas Iyer and Dinesh Karthik, as much for providing a sixth bowling option as his batting.
Buttler was still able to complete a 45-ball fifty, albeit with just five fours, including a stylish cover-drive off Umesh. He's our best player - a fantastic player in all forms of the game. Spin twins Kuldeep Yadav (39 wickets in 20 ODIs) and Yuzvendra Chahal (43 wickets in 23 ODIs) will hold the key after their heroics since they were introduced to the team after last year's Champions Trophy.
Not only that, Dhoni will also become only the second wicketkeeper-batsman to score 10000 runs.
