I do think that Colly has a better chance of amending his game to hit out with the tailenders. Still, there is an issue of pecking order. If Colly is moved down it would look like a step on the ladder out of the side. In fact, given Strauss' making a score in each of the last three tests, albeit no ton and Colly's ODI captaincy plus score in the last test, Bell really looks like the man for the drop at present.
