London - Chris Woakes became just the 10th player in history to have scored a hundred and taken five or more wickets in a Test innings at Lord's when he reached three figures in the ongoing second Test against India.

Woakes was 137 not out when England captain Joe Root declared his side's first innings on 396 for seven, a lead of 289 runs, on Sunday's fourth day.

Woakes's innings, his maiden Test century, meant he now has a place on both the batting and bowling honours boards at Lord's.
