His innings meant Woakes became just the 10th cricketer after England's Gubby Allen, Ray Illingworth, Ian Botham, Andrew Flintoff, Broad, Stokes, Australia's Keith Miller, the West Indies" Garfield Sobers and India's Vinoo Mankad to get his name on both the Lord's honours boards that record all those who have scored a century or taken five or more wickets in an innings during a Test at the "home of cricket'.
On the Day 2, English bowlers used the conditions perfectly and restricted India for just 107 runs in the first innings. Lower back issue coming up again and again, purely because of the workload. First time in the last five Tests that we've been outplayed. "I should be okay", he said.
And welcome to our live blog of day four of the Lord's Test match. But credit to England, they were clinical. "When a team plays like that they deserve to be on the winning side". "And we deserved to lose", he said.
That was the only complaint about a display of officiating that Aleem Dar and Marais Erasmus could be proud of in hard conditions for umpires, with the first 10 of their 12 decisions that were reviewed upheld by technology.
"He's something that doesn't come along very often and we've got to enjoy him while he's around", Root said. Sometimes the rub of the green goes your way when it doesn't a quality side will make it count.
'We will not sit around and say we didn't have the conditions and use excuses'. "Looking at things now, the weather was so unpredictable", he added.
Meanwhile, winning team captain Joe Root praised his bowlers after the match and said, "Less stressful, definitely".
"Less stressful, definitely. Fantastic from the very first ball". Skipper Virat Kohli will be hoping big from the bowling unit namely pacer Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav. "We probably did have the conditions throughout, but you still have to perform, ask the right questions of the batsman".
Praising Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes for their partnership, Root said, "To get that far in front, testament to the partnership between Jonny and Woakes". Really pleased for Woaksey. "When you've got senior guys like Jimmy and Broad, the others are going to improve".
"You've got to be quite realistic with the surfaces we've played on, two challenging wickets, a lot of seam and swing movement throughout". Chuffed to bits for Woakes. "It's a great team performance", he added.
