England's Woakes joins elite Lord's club

London, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 12th Aug, 2018 ) :Chris Woakes became just the 10th player in history to have scored a hundred and taken five or more wickets in a Test innings at Lord's when he reached three figures in the ongoing second Test against India.

Woakes was 137 not out when England captain Joe Root declared his side's first innings on 396 for seven, a lead of 289 runs, on Sunday's fourth day.
