Chris Woakes creates a record against Smith in the Ashes 2019

Steve Smith, the Australian batsman, has become an impenetrable force with the bat for the Aussies in the Ashes 2019. Chris Woakes, England’s all-rounder, is the only bowler who had some relief against the quality of Smith.

He is the only bowler in the ongoing Test series to dismiss Smith thrice while no other bowler has got rid of him more than once. Woakes consistency with the ball and his line and lengths have been pretty commendable in the series so far.

Although he has not managed to pick up a bulk of wickets, but still created problems for the Australian batsmen now and then. His bowling average in the Test format is 30.85, and he has taken 87 wickets in the 30 Test matches he played till date.
