"I don " t have any fears about it, I want to see us being as complete a side as possible in all three competitions, but I want to be a part of them", said Root ahead of the first one-day worldwide against India at Trent Bridge on Thursday.
The chase was a stroll in the park as the runs were knocked off in only 40.1 overs courtesy Rohit's (137 not out). Captain Virat Kohli contributed 75 before being stumped by the quick-thinking Jos Buttler, ending a 167-run partnership and leaving India at 226-2, but the necessary 43 were found without difficulty.
None of the England batsmen was able to read him; he bowled an astounding 38 dot balls and was not hit for a boundary. This was Kuldeep's first five-for in ODIs after he had recently achieved the same feat in T20Is during the Manchester encounter.
Though both England and India will play without the service of their best pace bowlers - Jasprit Bumrah and Chris Woakes, respectively - there is enough quality in the match with the ball too.
Rohit, who always takes time to get off the blocks and then accelerate, hit 15 fours and four sixes.
With the ball, spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali will be a major threat to the visitors.
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.
With cricket's blue riband tournament scheduled to be held in United Kingdom next year, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a drift about the conditions that his men are expected to encounter at exactly same time next year.

Gazza was of course one of the star players the last time England played in an World Cup semi-final back in 1990. The England team need to beat Croatia on Wednesday (11 July) to reserve their spot in the final on Sunday.
Even Kuldeep's spin twin Yuzvendra Chahal (1/51 in 10 overs) was not exactly economical.
Kuldeep was not afraid to flight the ball and it dipped viciously having the batsmen in two minds.
Along with their batting line-up, Kuldeep Yadav and YuzvendraChahal may be the key players in deciding the outcome.
Root entered the Indian Premier League auction this year, for the first time, saying he did not want to be "left behind" in the T20 format.
Roy (38) was caught by Umesh Yadav while Bairstow (38) and Root were trapped lbw in the 13th over.
"I started pretty well in the first two overs and luckily I got a couple (of wickets), which really changed the momentum for us". It became 105 for four as Chahal got into the mix of things with Eoin Morgan caught at cover.
Led by their openers, England need to keep playing the type of cricket they played against Australia, where they brought out some near-perfect performances.
