Chris Woakes was euphoric after scoring his maiden Test hundred on Saturday at the Lord’s Cricket Ground against India on day three of the second Test.Woakes, who replaced Ben Stokes in the England side for the second Test, marked his return to Test cricket with a fluent unbeaten 120 not out off 159 balls as play was called off early due to bad light.Woakes stitched a 189-run stand with Jonny Bairstow for the sixth wicket and scored his hundred off just 129 balls on Saturday. With England struggling at 131/5 in reply to India’s first innings total of 107, Woakes’ fantastic display with the bat put England in a commanding position at the end of Day 3 as they lead by 250 runs, with 357 on board.Speaking about his hundred, Woakes said that he never thought that he will reach the landmark and doesn’t have words to describe the feeling.”It’s hard to put into words, I suppose. I didn’t have that on my radar at the start of the day – I was hoping the boys would bat long and I would get in towards the backend of the day. It’s an incredible feeling to raise your bat at Lord’s and be on that Honours Board.Also read – India fall behind as Woakes, Bairstow dominate”I went from 60 to 80 pretty quickly and all of a sudden started thinking about it – my beans were going and I tried to hit every ball. The nineties were a bit of a blur but I am so pleased to get there,” an elated Woakes told SkySports after the end of day’s play.advertisement Chris Woakes remained unbeaten on 120 at the end of day three’s play (Reuters Photo)Woakes also said Bairstow and his plan was to see off the seamers and take it easy.”We got through a few tricky phases – their seamers kept running in and we tried to see off each spell. We kept looking at the lead and tried to go up in fives and that worked well for us. When we got to tea we were in a good position and then the runs flowed afterwards.”India vs England, 2nd Test, Day 3: HighlightsWoakes came in to bat at a tricky situation, with England’s score on 131/5 and a slender lead of 24 on the board. The all-rounder first took his time and once he settled in, his showed his full array of shots against an Indian team, which was definitely missing a third full-time pacer. He kept the scoreboard ticking and supported Bairstow perfectly. The likes of Pandya and Kuldeep tried to get his wicket but Woakes defied them and took them for easy runs.Woakes hit 18 fours in his innings so far as England continued to dominate the second Test.Earlier, with the ball, Woakes picked up 2/19 from six overs as India were bowled out for 107 on day two of the Test match.
