England call-up Bell for ODIs

2010-09-19 16:13

London - England have called up Ashes hopeful Ian Bell for the two remaining one-day internationals against Pakistan.

The call-up follows Bell's match-winning 107 from 95 balls for Warwickshire in the final of the English 40 over competition at Lord's on Saturday, which saw his county beat Somerset by three wickets.

The 28-year-old was not involved earlier in the series against Pakistan as he had just returned from a metatarsal injury, but is deemed a guaranteed pick for Thursday's Ashes squad announcement.

England lead the series 2-1, with the game at Lord's on Monday and the final match in Southampton on Wednesday to come.
