That Ian Bell, eh? Rubbish, isn’t he?
First he cashes in on a flat deck at Taunton and expects everybody to be all impressed. Then he follows it up with another hundred against the same opponents, as if that’s somehow proving something. You can’t play against Somerset every week, Ian.
This second hundred was in a one-day game as well. What’s that got to do with Test cricket? Rubbish. Absolute rubbish.
We’ve no particular love for Ian Bell, but we’re not about to start taking issue with someone who keeps cranking out hundreds. There are some who are so committed in their opposition to him that they discard his achievements on grounds that should only lead to reservations.
The campaign to not really have strong opinions about Ian Bell either way starts here!
