Given No 1 hosts No 2 in the rankings in this three-match series and India's lineup is also packed with rapacious batsmen - not least their captain, Virat Kohli, who is one-day cricket's unrivalled best - this desire for reinforcements with the ball is understandable even if Stokes has bowled only two competitive overs since May.
England'sJoe Root said that India will pose a different challenge for the home side than Australia and the upcoming three-match ODI series should serve as a marker for their preparation for the 2019 World Cup. Given the consistent attitude and approach India has shown in ODIs over quite some time, it is a no-brainer that the openers will be the same. What we need to do to move forward as a team.
"It will important for us, to play to stick to our strengths and strategies". "They will bring different challenges to what we've recently faced but we know if we play to our potential, we will be a very hard side to beat, especially at home". For Root, this series holds prime personal importance. He couldn't cope with wrist spin in both T20Is at Manchester and Cardiff.
"I fully understood the decision". "You see guys come back from those tournaments with a huge amount of experience and a rounded way of looking at the game; a different take on certain aspects". And then: "One thing that is for sure, it's great to see Stokesy [his replacement in Bristol] back playing".
"What sort of combinations, targets can be available for us".
When Root speaks in press conferences, he constantly - sometimes monotonously - talks about the team and how he just wants England to do well.
"I don't have any fears about it". Some of that is undoubtedly the media training that all worldwide players are now given to ensure they don't ever say anything of any interest but it's also clear that Root has a deep desire for this group of England players to succeed.
"So whether it's making sure I get enough rest, or if there are global games throughout those tournaments, I'm going to have to miss out". India had begun the tour with a good win in Manchester but went down in the second game at Cardiff.
"Yes it does (present opportunities to grab spots) and ahead of a World Cup that's what you want. It can't be a bad thing", he said.
England had got off to a strong start, reaching 43 off four overs and 118 for two of 10 overs before being reeled in by the Indian bowlers and posting a total that was 20 or 30 runs short. Trent Bridge is a favourite hunting ground for English batsmen who have scored 400-plus here twice in three summers. "I am expecting nothing else but a high scoring series", the vice-captain said.
"One thing we have been good at is assessing things early on and planning an innings".
Talk about a rough way to lose - especially after the A's put up up four runs in the ninth to send the game to extra innings. This would have been his fourth walk-off RBI of the season, but it was credited as an error so he doesn't get credit.
Narongsak, giving details of the rescue, said falling oxygen levels inside the cave complex had added a sense of urgency. He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man".
