Whoever did this interview did a good job. Getting Bell to open up and talk about specific things instead of generalisations. It shows that Bell is a thinking player, one which Moores, the previous coach, remarked on. It is so refreshing not to get the stereotypes so often trotted out about our England side. Well done. This is obviously from the same source which provided the previous video material.
