Chris Woakes to miss home tests vs New Zealand

Chris Woakes, the England all rounder is set to miss the home tests against New Zealand later this summer. The talented all rounder underwent a knee surgery on Wednesday, which in all probability has made him unavailable for the New Zealand tests.

The Warwickshire seamer tore his left meniscus while recovering from a foot injury which he sustained during England’s horrid phase in the 2015 World Cup.

The England and Wales Cricket Board issued a statement on Wednesday which said that, “The ECB medical team confirms that England and Warwickshire bowler Chris Woakes underwent uncomplicated keyhole surgery on his left knee for a meniscal tear earlier today.”The injury occurred while undergoing rehab for his foot injury. His rehab is likely to take a further four to six weeks.”

Woakes played against India in the last three tests of the 2014 summer and troubled the Indian batsmen to a great extent. His absence will surely be felt by the English side.
