"A well earned lunch for Team India", tweeted the BCCI, sharing a picture of the menu that included grilled chicken, paneer tikka curry, seared halibut and much more.
His innings, which has been in progress more than three-and-a-half hours, meant Woakes´s name was now on all three Lord´s honours boards that record centuries, five-wicket innings returns and 10-wicket match hauls in Tests at the ´home of cricket´.
However, the English weather dramatically changed on Thursday morning and continuous drizzle forced the officials to abandon the first day's play.
Woakes took six for 70 and five for 32 in a match return of 11 for 102 against Pakistan at Lord´s in 2016. "I didn´t have that (a Test century) on my radar at the start of the day. The 90s were a bit of a blur but I am so pleased to get there".
Instead he fell seven short when brilliantly caught one-handed by diving opposing wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik off Pandya.
James Anderson took five wickets in ideal swing bowling conditions after rain prevented play on Thursday (Friday NZ time) and more showers allowed only 8.3 overs before the first prolonged passage of play began shortly after 5pm local time.
By contrast, England´s innings commenced under sunny blue skies that promised to make life easier for the batsmen.
Towards the end, tailender Mohammed Shami struck a few lusty blows to guide India to the three-figure mark before fellow quick Ishant Sharma (0) was trapped by Anderson. England came out to bat on the third day and lost two early wickets in the form of openers Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings.
Virat Kohli's mistake led to Cheteshwar Pujara being run out.
But, on 28, Pope missed a straight delivery from Hardik Pandya and had to depart.
That brought debutant Ollie Pope to the crease and Surrey's talented 20-year-old showed no signs of nerves as he combined with Root to take the score to 77-2. He was fortunate to enter the fray with the ball no longer swinging as it had throughout the match and India's bowling attack - undoubtedly rueing the decision to pick two spinners - either tiring or ineffective.
