So, Collingwood, Broad, Cook and Luke Wright have come down with stomach bugs and are doubtful for the warm-up match on Friday. Here's a chance for Bell to captain the team.

Unfortunately, they'll probably ask Pietersen.

Stomach bugs already they have only just got there.

Has he ever captained a team before?

Well he has to look after his ego which must be worth about 11 players!

I trust you are talking about Pietersen.
Before Collingwood was appointed one-day captain KP said he had considered throwing his hat into the ring, so I thought perhaps the selectors would think of him first.

I wouldn't like KP as captain. It would have to be between Mascarenhas and Bell.

I hope they would choose Bell over Mascarenhas. I think it's a fairly safe bet that they won't choose Jimmy.

He's happy just being the bowling captain.

"We've discussed two or three options on the captaincy," Moores said. The only alternatives to Pietersen would seem to be Cook, who is yet to fully establish himself in the one-day side, and the somewhat diffident Ian Bell".

Better they get them out of the way now before the series starts.

Hope Shah doesn't get stomach cramps like he did in Mumbai.

Silly boy. I was actually in Mumbai for that, it was a great knock though, and he should be one that really ups his game over in SL.

I've read this from Simon Briggs in the Telegraph. It is Moores who says they have discussed two or three options. He doesn't name any names. It is Briggs who decides that the only alternatives to KP are Cook and Bell. He seems to be forgetting that Cook is one of the afflicted, and it his own assessment that Bell is somewhat diffident. He isn't diffident in the field, actually, but takes a full part. However, they may decide that it is the wrong time for him to be thinking about captaincy (albeit of a warm-up match) just when he has started to produce the goods at one-day level.

This Bell is diffident is utter nonsense. He's quite short that's all - which is different.

It's a media stereotype, formed during Ashes 05 and never revised.

KP has gone down with the bug. Bell's chances might be looking up.
