Guy From Lancs plainly a multi of Cricket Webcomics, such is his comedic genius.
Would bowl a fourth stump line to him, with a third man in once he's set. Try to drag him across, but not bowl the straighter one more than every 3-4 overs.
It's a solid plan. Would work for both of them I reckon.
This place is choc full of smartass bellends. You can't blame a guy for trying to fit in

You've got to earn the right to be aggressive
It'll be interesting to see what Australia's plans to Bell are. This isn't intended as a criticism but Bell was the one England batsman who Australia didn't seem to have a plan to. Whether it's because Bell was just in good form or not I don't know, but Australia seemed to either come in with a plan, or very quickly work out a plan to every batsman bar Bell.
Tbf they've never needed one for him before.
I think the damage was mostly done before he got to the crease in 10/11.
It may well be that they thought if they focused on the top order and executed thir plans, Bell wouldn't perform if he came in under pressure. That's pure supposition on my part though
