For England, the summer is bringing a plethora of challenges as both World Cup and Ashes would test the audacity and the prowess of the English players. After getting injured in the last edition of the Champions Trophy, there is an extra incentive for all-rounder Chris Woakes in the forthcoming mega-event as he yearns to deliver strongly.
While it becomes hard to weigh Ashes and World Cup, the 30-year old cricketer is clear on his priorities as he picked the World Cup victory over Ashes. Explaining his pick, the Warwickshire born said that winning the most cherished 50-over tournament at home would be a massive thing to turn down.
In addition to that, the accomplished all-rounder is positive about England’s chances in the World Cup as he is of the view that his team sits in a great shape to win the upcoming mega-event.
“If it was a matter of life or death and I had to choose one, it would probably be the World Cup. To potentially lift the World Cup at Lord’s, the home of cricket – that doesn’t come around very often. The opportunity to do that is too big to turn down,” said by the proficient cricketer.
