England's Woakes joins elite Lord's club

LONDON (AFP) – 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 s innings, his maiden Test century, meant he now has a place on both the batting and bowling honours boards at Lord s.
