Chris Woakes

Chris Woakes is one of the few cricketers who have been named the Wisden Cricket of the Year. The England paceman, now a good all-rounder, made his Test debut in 2013 during the Ashes but played only six Tests before being dropped from the England team. In 2016, he was recalled after Ben Stokes was injured. That recall was like a second life for him. He showed his class with both bat and ball especially in the series against Pakistan where he took 26 wickets at an average of 16. He played some handy knocks with the bat. Woakes is new to the Indian Premier League. He has played only one season in the T20 League -- with Kolkata Knight Riders -- and impressed with his bowling. In IPL 2018, he will turn up for Royal Challengers Bangalore as an all-rounder.
