While England are already out of contention for a place in the semifinals, they still have a lot of pride and a place in the Champions Trophy 2025 to play for. Giving it their all, England all-rounder Chris Woakes did not want to lose his wicket and immediately informed the umpire that he had a faulty helmet when he came out to bat.

The Woakes’ incident happened before the third ball of the 36th over when the English all-rounder came to the on-field umpire and had an exchange of words.
