Ian Bell’s given a monumentally unenlightening interview to the BBC.
Summary: ‘I want to play for England’.
Towards the end, he says:
“I’ve got to make sure that I’m undroppable over the second part of my England career.”
You’re undroppable now, Ian. It’s just you’re undroppable in the same way as Leicestershire’s Josh Cobb or Gloucestershire’s Rob Woodman. You’re as undroppable as we are, Ian.
No-one can say that we’re in even the slightest danger of getting dropped from the England team for poor performance, lax fitness or a bad attitude.
We aren’t even going to get dropped for making all our team mates feel morbid as a result of our forceful and unrelenting negativity.
