Chris Woakes opts out of IPL to stay fresh ahead of the England’s home Test summer

The English all-rounder Chris Woakes has pulled himself out of his stint with the Delhi Capitals in the upcoming Indian Premier League season. Woakes, who was signed for 160,000 GBP by the Delhi-based franchise, has decided to alleviate the work load ahead of the England’s Test summer.

On the other hand, the reports suggest that the fear of Corona Virus has also promoted the all-rounder to stay back home and wait for the upcoming toilsome work. England is set to play 6 Test matches at home this summer- starting with the 3-match Test series against the West Indies.

Delhi Capitals has not announced Woakes replacement yet. Woakes has been a consistent part of England’s Test team and his presence will be key to uphold the balance of the team going deep into the ICC Test Championship.
