    The question is why is Bell even playing? Whoever was responsible for his selection in this Test should lose his job. England have effectively gone into this match a man down, and have been doing so in all the overseas Tests in which Bell has played in the UAE and the S/C over the past 18 months.
    "In 2009 he lost his old, faded India cap, when it was stolen from a ground. He was very, very upset about it. It was dear to him and he was extremely proud to wear it."

    he may well have been dropped already had the selectors listened to me and dumped patel for root back before the 2nd test #alwaysright

    With absolute certainty I predict Bell will play in the 1st test in New Zealand. Whether he should is open to debate, personally i'd have left him at home after he went on paternity leave.

    Bit of a mad hatter selection, Root. Couldn't be less familiar conditions and situation. Maybe searching for a Faf

    If Bell plays in NZ he'll probably get a graceful 200 against their quicks. Hopefully the selectors will realise they can't keep picking him as he can't perform against spin.

    Quite like the early signs of Root's footworkoving back to the spinners. Nice drive just now too.

    Heh. Root.

    Bell will be fine once he escapes the subcontinent.

    It's cause Morgan & Patel ****ing suck. Maybe lucky to get ahead of the red head but I think it's a very sound selection, and should have been done for the 2nd test.

    Nah Bell is pretty good at tonking good bowlers at home if Cook and co. have already done all the work.

    He and AB could make a club. /Burgey

    Also a contributor to one of the great dismissals

    If England's debutant makes a ton, will a tabloid run with an "India Rooted" headline?
