Chris Woakes Keen To Claim Spot In T20 World Cup Squad
The T20 World Cup has spread its fever to all parts of the world already. Though the tournament is still a few months away, the teams and players are eager to showcase their talents and get picked for this upcoming competition. It is yet another international title to be won and the teams are taking no prisoners. They are all keen to leave their mark and one such player who is now given a shoutout to his national team is Chris Woakes.
The English all-rounder wants to leave his mark on the upcoming series. That is, in order to ensure that he gets picked for the national side. England will be playing Sri Lanka in the upcoming series and the player will want to impress.
The pacer who was recalled into the England T20 squad after a gap of six years is really positive about his selection. He has suggested that he wants to leave no stone unturned and take his chances well.
In his recent interview with ESPNcricinfo, the player was quoted as saying, “I have not been in this squad for a while (six years). I look at this as an opportunity. It is great for me to be back amongst the squad. I do not take any squad selection for granted. Certainly not just here to make up the numbers. If I get a go I will be trying to stake a claim. I also realise there are a few injuries knocking around but that doesn’t take anything away from me being part of this English team. I am putting my hand up to be part of this World Cup – with two World Cups around the corner.”
Well, the attitude of the player is really positive. England is already the world champion in the 50-over format. However, it is now time for this squad to focus on the T20 World Cup. They have a great team and a well-established squad, with enough backups for each role. Keeping that in mind, the players will now want to put on a solid show when the tournament starts. Players like Chris Woakes could be really crucial if The Three Lions want to win this tournament!!
