So does this still count as post count boosting when our main objective is to get rid of that banner? Difficult one. Why don't I say something else about Bell to disguise those objectives? I wonder if this ODI series performance will give him more test security. Certainly he was the most vulnerable player in the batting line up apart from Strauss but such dominant batting, even in the wrong form of the game, has to have enhanced his standing.

The problem with this approach is that it takes longer.

I agree. On both counts.

I thought he was married / getting married. Is this the girlfriend or the fiancee?

I was just going to tell you. Its on Getty Images (under England Cricket), bigger pic there. It isn't his fiancee. Maybe that has finished and this is the new lady.

Are you sure it's not his fiancée? Interesting.. well it's obviously not someone he just posed for a picture with because EC says he was with her the whole time.

The quote above the picture says it's his girlfriend. This girlfriend has more refined features and looks a lot slimmer.

I guess when you move up the LG ICC batting rankings you also move up a couple of other ladders too.

I've looked at the caption, which reads "Ian Bell and his girlfriend Chantal". His fiancée was called Lucy I think, so you are right. I had only seen fleeting glimpses of the fiancée - or shoud that be ex-fiancée? - so wasn't sure.

I wonder if the change of girlfriend has had any bearing on his change of pace when batting?
