Woakes returns to England squad for Oval Test vs India



Woakes, England’s player of the year in 2020 who has returned to fitness after an injury and playing for Warwickshire’s 2nd XI last week as well as their T20 Blast will play at The Oval. Kent wicket-keeper Sam Billings was added to the 15-man squad because Buttler is not available due his wife expecting her second child.

The original passage details that Chris Woakes would be joining Jos Buttler on international duty while he misses out with his wife expecting a baby. This news piece aims to inform its readers about this addition; however it fails make any mention if either man are likely starters or substitutes which may affect how interesting one finds it from just reading through once without pausing.

It is great news that we are welcoming back Chris Woakes to the England squad. He’s been bowling well with Warwickshire without any real injury concerns, and it will be nice to have him on hand both for his ability as a bowler and batting skills going into two Tests in quick succession. We’re looking forward to seeing how he prepares at The Oval ahead of us starting back-to-back matches!

England pick Malan, Mahmood for third Test

Dawid Malan, the Yorkshire batsman who was recalled to England’s squad for next week’s third Test against India at Headingley has been a player on the rise ever since his international debut in November 2016.
Malan is known as an aggressive, stroke-filled opener and will be looking forward to putting these skills into use when he faces Pakistan during their upcoming tour of England later this year.

Lancashire quick Saqib Mahmood has also been included in the 15-man party but there is no place for Jack Leach who has been sent back to Somerset to play some cricket after Moeen Ali’s recall to the side at Lord’s. Leach does, however, remain on standby. Mark Wood has also been included in the squad despite injuring his shoulder in the second Test.
