GILES BACKS BELL

The coach of the England ODI side, Ashley Giles, has made it clear that Ian Bell will be the opening partner of Alastair Cook in the upcoming Champions Trophy.

Bell has been Cook’s opening partner in the ODIs since quite a while now. He was given this role when Kevin Pietersen was out of the team last year and even after Pietersen’s return, he is carrying on that role.
