Bio

For 10 years Ian Bell has been building a reputation as one of the best batsmen in England, if not the world. Born in Warwickshire, the 32-year-old 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, an unbeaten 126, came in 2007 and to date Bell has more than 30 ODI fifties to his name.

Bell’s Test numbers are even more impressive featuring 21 centuries and 42 fifties.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be Bell’s third appearance at cricket’s biggest event.

His 2007 tournament produced a top performance of 77, while his 2011 World Cup included two fifties.
