Kindly concentrate on your entirely justifiable ambition to bat at 6 in first class cricket.No disrespect to the excellent Mr Carter, a player for whom power-plays could have been invented. But Chris Woakes' talent is of a different order.

Yep. Thats his way into test cricket as well. Unless Bopara and or Patel tie down that number 6 position this winter there has to be an argument for Prior moving up and Chris getting in.

After all Engs number 6 has largely been a waste of space ever since the start of the Ashes last winter.

i like your new signature. Just hope you don't become a Surrey or a Notts fan :thumbup:

Woakes is a better batsmen than Rikki Clarke in my opinion.

Update on Chris Woakes from Myles Hodgson on Cricinfo:
"News of Chris Woakes’ recovery from his ankle problem. He has been using the facilities at Finch Farm, Everton’s training ground, in an effort to speed up his recovery schedule. He has also used Aston Villa’s training ground facilities, although Warwickshire do not expect him to return for at least another two or three weeks."

Was informed yesterday that he'd gone to Everton to use their facilities...saw him hobbling back to the pavilion later in the day.
Also reported that he may not be out for as long as first thought?
I'm a horrid bint.....apparently!

Seemed to grimace a bit when working with the Physio too, please team don't rush him back he is too precious. Young and talented need him for many years.

With the way Wright and Barker are performing no need to rush him back.

"Bowled into the ground, year in, year out"? Mr. Anderson must be joking. In all cricket for all teams, Chris Woakes has so far, as he enters his 7th season of first-class cricket, bowled 8753 deliveries. If I look back 50 years, in 1962, Derek Shackleton (similar in pace to young Mr. Woakes) bowled 10303 deliveries in that one season. Of course, Chris Woakes has developed into an all-rounder. So take the example of the late, great Trevor Bailey who, in that same season, bowled 6546 deliveries and also scored 1460 runs, over half the number of runs that Chris Woakes has scored in his whole career to date.
Of course, there are massive differences between cricket (and life) then and now. There was no one-day cricket and less was expected of players in the field. But travelling times pre-motorways were a lot longer and accommodation for players (both hotels and dressing rooms) was much less luxurious - and there were no physios and fitness conditioners to tend to every ache and pain.
I'm as concerned as any Bears fan about Chris Woakes's fitness, health and welfare - but "bowled into the ground"? Do me a favour, Jimmy!

He has been called up to the one day side to replace Dernbach who has been released on compassionate grounds:

I think he looked like he had a bit of a side strain, lets hope its nothing. I am sure he would want to play for his Country, but we don't need him injured.

Looks like he is in as a replacement again:

It must be a bit unsettling to be in and out of the squad, but better than being forgotten.

Woakes was starting to look like a one-day regular last year then omitted - maybe because he was injured at the start of the season. Bairstow too - comes in as a one-day specialist then finds he's in the Test side but out of the one-dayers. It confuses the hell out of me, I just hope the selectors are making it clear to the players where they stand.
