Chris Woakes
Woakes available for Lord's game

I guess it is good news that Ed Smith has said:
"The selection panel felt that Chris Woakes needed a little more time to regain full form. We are keen to avoid rushing him back from injury too soon. Chris will combine playing for Warwickshire in T20s alongside building up red ball fitness and workload with the England coaches."
For Warwickshire we should read Birmingham.
Of course the ideal way to "build up red ball fitness" would be to play some red ball games; but there aren't any.

With no first class cricket for a month those are the only alternatives

Mixed feelings about Chris not getting bought at the IPL. Shame for him - but with my Bears hat on I must admit I am quite happy that he will be around this spring / early summer

Agreed, as England's death bowler of choice in 50-over cricket you might have expected him to get picked up even if he wouldn't be available for the whole series.

Anyway, this really could be the making of our season. With only one team getting relegated this year, all we need to do is finish above Kent and who do we play first? Kent. Woakesy could make all the difference.

Like your thinking Grizzly - get relegation out the way in the first game - then I suppose it's head for the number one spot!!
