Bears legend Ian Bell joins Richard and Olly this week for episode four of the latest series of the Bears PodBlast with BBC WM.

Bell’s retirement from the professional game concluded one of the great cricket careers of this era and one of the greatest Warwickshire careers of all time.

Citing one or two too many physical aches and pains for comfort and, most importantly, batting productivity, Bell called time on a career which delivered 34,360 runs across all formats.
