Batsman Bell was named man-of-the-series after the summer Ashes showdown in which he was a key figure in England's 3-0 defeat of Australia.

His tally of 562 at an average of 62 from the middle order equalled the English record for the most runs scored in a five-match home Ashes, set by Denis Compton back in 1948.

The Warwickshire right-hander also became only the fifth Englishman to score three consecutive centuries in Ashes Tests.
