Woakes Makes Test Debut
Warwickshire’s Chris Woakes makes his England Test debut today after being included in the starting XI to face Australia in the fifth and final match of this summer’s Investec Ashes Series.
Woakes (24) has made 82 First Class appearances and boasts a batting average of 37.67 and 25.48 with the ball, having made six hundreds and taken 13 five-wicket hauls.
He made his international debut in England’s tour of Australia in the winter of 2010/11 where he played in both the ODI and t20 International series. He has since gone on to win four t20 International caps and 13 ODI caps.
Good luck Woakesy.
