Chris Woakes

We may very well lose Woakes for a short time soon, as he has been called up to the England T20 and ODI squad:

A shame for us obviously, but best of luck to him.

"don't think Woakes is a good enough bowler for any form of the game"

You got that from 3 overs? flip off Athers.

Thought he said "opening bowler" and was referring to Woakes at international level?

Yeah I was talking about Int Level. That includes tests, no? He was on the fringes of the selection and would have been in the squad if he wasn't injured in the last test.

Praveen Kumar just ripped apart the WI bowling at 76mph in tests and does the same in ODI's, pace isn't everything and Woakes is a damn sight faster than PK.

I agree, Kumar did well. Not sure he "ripped apart" the West Indies, but he did well, and Woakes would also do that, he proved that when playing for the England Lions on the tour of the Caribbean. Gotta agree with Ath though, i do not think Woakes is a new ball bowler at this level yet.

For t20 and ODI's no, but tests is different thing all together.

Yeah agree, he'd probably get better value for his good balls.

He had one poor over today; but England were generally poor.

Its the most difficult time to bowl the first 6 overs and the third over is generally the one that gets targetted if you dont get an early wicket. Having said that he didnt bowl well but he has not long come back from injury. If you take the amount of wickets that Woakes has done with the sr and average he has in the first class game then you've got to be pretty good. Hes never been a good t20 bowler tbf and I dont think he should bowl up front in that form of cricket.

Woakes has been selected for the tour to India next month. Brilliant news but is anyone else concerned with the workload he shoulders all year round playing cricket?

Worried about those shins.

It may be a blessing in disguise that he's now injured - I think he needs the rest:

I wonder if it's the rectus femoris, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius or the vastus lateralis that he's injured - ain't Wkipedia wonderful?

Yes although I dont rate Danny Briggs. The Indian batsmen would murder him and its harsh to judge Bothwick on one game against India. I also believe Ben Stokes is a better prospect than Tom Maynard.

I like the way journos who may not have seen him much always say "and he can bat".

Hes a bloody sight better than that with the willow.

Briggs - cos he doesnt spin the ball - gets less effective the longer the format IMO.
