Even with a wetter weather on the horizon, Joe Root will rely on his 2-0 lead with three games in the series against the world number one team to play.

"Obviously I've had a couple of good games here in the past, I did not play a lot here, but every time I have it I've done pretty well," Woakes said.

"I do not know if it's the surface, the conditions or if I touch the shape when it's the week of the Lord, but I really enjoyed the bowling here, since the slope gives you a little more to work, and when the ball gets cloudy it Move in. Batting on the slope adds an extra dimension that I also enjoy. "

"Reaching the age of 100 was an incredible feeling and I was getting nervous until I was 90. To get a standing ovation at Lord's is a little childhood dream."
