England batsman Joe Root has dismissed the idea that his team-mates will go at half power for the fifth ODI against India, saying everyone wants to impress the selectors ahead of the New Zealand tour.
Root, who is in all three squads for the trip to the Antipodes, has been one of England's better players during the one-day series, even though they have lost the contest and are 3-1 down going into the finale.
But the Yorkshireman says there is no such thing as a dead rubber, and they will be going all out to restore some pride in Dharamshala, in the Himalayan mountains.
Root said: "Obviously we're disappointed with the way the series has gone as a team. Individually we've got a lot to play for.
"We've got a big series coming up in New Zealand and a lot of people who want to put forward a strong case before that.
"Any international game is one you want to win. Playing for your country has a lot riding on it. Everyone in our changing room has got that mentality going into tomorrow.
"You don't know how many international games you are going to play so I just want to enjoy every minute of it, absorb it and make the most of it."
