Eoin Morgan admitted Kuldeep Yadav "exposes" a weakness in England's game.
Kuldeep, the left-arm wristspinner, claimed 6 for 25 as England were thrashed by eight wickets with 59 balls remaining at Trent Bridge.
But despite the margin of defeat, Morgan played down the significance of the result. Suggesting that Kuldeep offers such unique challenges that it will rarely damage England, Morgan also reasoned that England would rather confront such challenges now, a year ahead of the World Cup, when they still have the opportunity to find solutions.
"He is very good and there is no getting around that," Morgan said. "He exposes an area of our game that we need to improve on and I think that is a good thing and a healthy thing.
"Considering there is only one left-arm [wristspin] bowler in the world it is not a huge concern. You play against one team and he happens to be very good, he is not any old left-arm [wristspinner].
"We have played great cricket for the last six months and not come up against anybody like this so it is a chance to improve on this area however long it might take between now and the World Cup. "You have to give credit where it is due, he did bowl well and we need to clarify our plans and commit to them and just be better."
