Delhi Capitals were bought by Chris Woakes but later withdrew, saying he wanted to stay fresh for the England domestic Test season.


England all-rounder Chris Woakes withdrew from the IPL this year to spend time with his pregnant wife. Now he feels that he did not need to do it officially.

The Indian Premier League has been postponed indefinitely due to the corona virus epidemic. Vox was bought by Delhi Capitals in the IPL auction for Rs 1.5 crore. He, however, later withdrew, stating that he wanted to stay fresh for the England domestic Test season.

Vox told The Cricketer, “I think I should not have withdrawn the name.” I did not say at that time, but a new guest is coming to our house in September. This was also the reason for that decision. ‘

He said, “My wife was not feeling well.” In such a situation, it was difficult to stay away from home for three months. Nothing more important than family.

Vox has not played a T20 match since August 2018 but said he did not consider his career to be over in this format. He said, ‘I don’t believe that my T20 career is over. I still want to play IPL’.
