Chris Woakes came on the international scene against Australia in 2011. Having first-class averages of 36 and 25 in batting and bowling respectively, he showed all-round potential from early days and has been able to live up to that. With the ability to swing the ball along with having variations, Woakes slowly but surely made his mark. In the last 2 years, he has been a regular part of all three England sides and impressed one and all with his talent. This will be Woakes' first stint in the IPL.
