Woakes had become a mainstay in all three global formats, but a side strain suffered barely two overs into England's Champions Trophy opener against Bangladesh at The Oval in June put him out of action for 11 weeks.
Root, leading England on his Yorkshire home ground for the first time, equalled South Africa star AB de Villiers's all-time record of fifties in 12 consecutive Tests when he swept recalled leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo for four.
BEN STOKES believes the England captaincy has made Joe Root into an even better player as he hailed the Yorkshireman as arguably the world's best batsman.
After losing the first of three tests by an innings and 209 runs, West Indies responded by bowling England out for 258 on Friday.
Woakes took seven wickets and scored 65 on his return to first-class cricket against Middlesex earlier this month.
"We didn't bowl well - we didn't create enough pressure.We talk about bowling in partnerships but there was always a release of pressure from one end".

"If you get through those hard periods - if it s a bit cloudy and it s nipping or swinging - then it s a fantastic place to bat".
West Indies great Curtly Ambrose labelled the performance "embarrassing" and "pathetic" but Holder insisted an improvement was possible.
"He's one hell of a player", said Stokes. We have to understand why it is there. "We still tried to get wickets rather than creating pressure", he said.
"What can we do?"
"We have been very open and forthcoming with thoughts on how they can get better and we are trying our very best to get it right in a short space of time".
"If they want to nail down those spots they have to deal with that and if they get in make it really count". "It is just the experience of learning how to play in a very tough environment", he said.
A awful thing has happened to West Indies cricket!
