Englishman Woakes, who was bought for Rs 1.5 crore by Delhi Capitals at IPL auction, has not played a T20 since August 2018, and last played a T20I for England in November 2015.
England play six home Tests next summer, starting with a series against West Indies which begins on June 4.
According to ESPNcricinfo report, the 31-year-old bowling all-rounder has withdrawn from the IPL, starting March 29.
Woakes was one of eight overseas players in the Delhi Capitals squad alongside Jason Roy, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Keemo Paul, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada and Shimron Hetmyer, with only four permitted per game.
Woakes has been a member of England’s recent Test squads, playing one Test against both New Zealand and South Africa, and is one of only four frontline seam options in their squad in Sri Lanka.
