Bio

Ian Bell has been one of England's best performers over a decorated career. Born in Warwickshire, he is known for his near-faultless technique.

He was earmarked for stardom when he scored a first-class century at age 19 and was called into the England squad after just 13 domestic appearances in 2002.

His Test debut came in August 2004 and his first one-day international cap followed soon after in November against Zimbabwe.

Bell was named the ICC’s emerging player of the year in 2006 and the right-handed batsman had consolidated his place in the England team.

His best ODI score, 141, came against Australia in Hobart in 2015. He has four centuries and 35 half-centuries to his name.

Bell’s Test numbers are even more impressive featuring 22 centuries and 46 fifties.

The veteran hasn't played Test cricket since November 2015 but still has ambitions of returning before he retires.
