Ian Bell is hopeful that a positive stretch in the Big Bash League with Perth Scorchers will reignite his England International aspirations. Bell will be expected to participate actively for the Scorchers, playing a key role in their top three.
The 34-year-old veteran who has a total of 118 Tests, 161 ODIs and 8 T20Is to his name, has not featured in a test match for England for over a year period.
However, with England’s 3-0 whitewash in the Indian Test series with a non-firing middle order, Bell is desperate to make a comeback into the national side.
He had been left disappointed after he was axed due to failing to score a century in 23 Test innings. He however believes he still has more to give, and having captained Warwickshire through the English county season. Bell is hoping that a standout campaign at the BBL will help remind the selectors of the plethora of talents he possesses.
