“I hoped I might get another go, whenever that was, and I wasn’t thinking of retiring from that format, but I certainly thought they might have moved on from going back to me. Obviously, I’m delighted to have the opportunity to have another go at a World Cup, and I’m really excited about that,” Chris Woakes added.

“There are no guarantees that myself, or anyone else, will be selected for the next one so you have to make the most of the (opportunity) here and now. It’s a great opportunity to lift silverware for your country. To be honest, I think this T20 World Cup could be won by pretty much anyone, so that’s also exciting, and it’s a great tournament to be a part of,” Chris Woakes said.
