The batsman, once a mainstay of the England order, was overwhelmed by the messages that came his way from across the cricketing world.
Right, where do I start? Aside from the small detail of playing my final ever red ball game, I’ve needed this week to take everything in. The messages, calls, tweets, news articles, TV features etc, have been absolutely mind blowing and I can’t begin to thank everyone enough. pic.twitter.com/3DOZDyxfDX— Ian Bell (@Ian_Bell) September 11, 2020
