England's bowling all-rounder, Chris Woakes, scripted his name on the Lord's Honour Boards as he scored his maiden Test century against India on Day 3 of the 2nd Test at the iconic stadium, Lord's. He joins an elite club as he becomes the 10th player to have his name in the batting and bowling ranks.
Waokes, orchestrated England's proceedings with his maiden ton, scripting his name on the batting list. Woakes also has a ten-wicket haul at Lord's as well. He joins Gubby Allen, Keith Miller, Ian Botham and present teammate Stuart Broad.

Coming in on the sixth wicket, Woakes and Bairstow tore apart the Indian bowling unit with their 189-run partnership, with the pacer going on to score his maiden Test century and in what fashionable style.
