1. 00:00 SOUNDBITE: (English) Chris Woakes, England all-rounder:
(on England's record breaking innings of 444-3)
"Like you said, it's probably only happened since 12 months ago against New Zealand. That's probably where it really started. But yeah, we do have to pinch ourselves just a little bit because it's been dramatic, the improvements from where we were, so hopefully that can continue and we still realise that there is a lot improvements to be made, we are not the finished article by any means. I think that was shown in the first two games of this series. Although we were winning, we still felt like we could improve. We showed that today. It was still not a perfect performance. It was probably a perfect performance with the bat. But there are still things to work on."
2. 00:38 SOUNDBITE: (English) Chris Woakes, England all-rounder:
(on England's bowling)
"Yeah, it gets to the stage in the dressing room where all the batsmen are cheering it and all the bowlers are going 'Oh my God!' because you know the opening batsmen from the opposition are going to have to come out hard at you, but at the same time that's an opportunity to get wickets and that was exactly the way it worked I suppose".
3. 00:56 SOUNDBITE: (English) Chris Woakes, England all-rounder:
(on whether England can score 500 in an ODI innings):
"Who knows? If the boys keep batting like they are you can 'never say never'. But it would be a really freakish day I suppose. When was the last time that was? - I can't remember when that score was - in South Africa in 2006 (South Africa, 438-9 beat Australia 434-4), that's a long time ago now isn't it. There's been a lot of changes in rules and power plays and things like that, and this is the first time it's been done. We've seen 400 reached a lot more often, but whether 500 can be done I'm not sure it can to be honest. I hope not, as a bowler, if I'm honest."
4. 01:33 SOUNDBITE: (English) Chris Woakes, England all-rounder:
(on Alex Hales' batting)
"No, it definitely hasn't surprised me if I'm honest. He's a brilliant player who's scored runs at international level before so yes, it's no surprise that he can do it. I've played against him for Warwickshire as you said and he's scored big hundreds, more in four-day cricket to be honest with you, where he's scored big hundreds, 'daddy hundreds', as they're called, in the space of no time. He had 100 against us before lunch, you've got to be able to play if you are doing that. It's not just a one off."
5. 02:09 SOUNDBITE: (English) Chris Woakes, England all-rounder:
(on Alex Hales' batting)
"I mean it's tricky one isn't it. I'm going to sound like a broken record after what the lads have said before. We are trying to concentrate on our cricket for this series. It's obviously a really important series for us. We are having all the discussions with Reg (Reg Dickason - ECB security director), the security people, Straussy (Andrew Strauss - ECB Director of cricket), and I'm sure by the end of the series everyone will have had to make their minds up. I'm in exactly the same boat. But you obviously have to respect the security level of Reg has come back with. We'll have to do that."
England all-rounder Chris Woakes said there were still 'a lot of improvements to be made' in the last two one-day-internationals (ODIs) against Pakistan after England's record-breaking performance in the 3rd ODI in Nottingham on Tuesday (30th August).
Chris Woakes lauded England's improvements in one-day cricket over the last year, but said the side was still 'not the finished article'.
He was speaking after England's batsmen compiled a record-breaking 444-3 in the third ODI in Nottingham to surpass the mark of 443-9 set by Sri Lanka against the Netherlands in July 2006.
England won the match by 169 runs and claimed the series with two matches to go.
The fourth ODI is in Leeds on Thursday (1st September), followed by the fifth ODI in Cardiff on Sunday (4th September).
Woakes was asked if he thought anyone would reach 500 in a over match.
The all-rounder said "that 'as a bowler, I hope not."
He referred to the classic ODI match in 2006, in Johannesburg when Australia compiled 434 in their innings only to be overtaken by South Africa's 438.
The cumulative score was 872 which still stands as a record.
Woakes was also asked whether he would make himself available for England's tour to Bangladesh in October.
He said that "by the end of the series everyone will have had to make their minds up".
England's security director Reg Dickason returned from Bangladesh earlier in the month to recommend the tour should go ahead, but the ECB has made it clear that every player has the right to decide whether or not to go on the tour.
