Chris Woakes says he is extremely happy with his bowling after he picked up six for 47 in the 5th One-Day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka at Pallekele. Woakes went on to say that he was just trying to pitch the ball in the right areas and was also trying to execute his skills. He also complimented the other bowlers for containing Sri Lanka well.

Woakes’ six wicket haul,  Joe Root‘s unbeaten ton and James Taylor‘s half century helped England stay alive in the seven match series. Sri Lanka lead the series 3-2 with two games remaining. England will believe that they can still win the series from here. Next ODI will be played at the same venue on December 13.
