Profile

Once described by Dayle Hadlee as the best 16-year old he had ever seen, Ian Bell had been earmarked for greatness long before he was drafted onto the England tour of New Zealand in 2001-02, as cover for the injured Mark Butcher.

Timeline
    • June 4, 2005
      The maiden Test century
      • The opposition is admittedly weak, but Ian Bell needs only three innings to notch up his first Test century. After scoring 70 and 65 not out in his first two innings, he scores an unbeaten 162 against Bangladesh in Chester-le-Street.
    • July-September 2005
      Ashes horrors
      • After a terrific start to his Test career, Bell is quickly brought down to earth in the 2005 Ashes by Glenn Mcgrath and Shane Warne. Bell scores two half-centuries at Old Trafford but only manages 171 runs in ten innings in the series.
    • November 2005
      Redemption in Pakistan
      • Bell is England's highest run-getter with 313 runs at an average of 52.16 in the series defeat in Pakistan. In Faisalabad he scores 115, his second Test century.
