During a live Zoom, Ian Bell answered your questions about his favourite cricketing moments, retiring and his future endeavours.

Bell, who graduated from boy to man through the Edgbaston youth system, went on to help the first team win every domestic trophy.

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.

“For me it’s just about thanking everyone,” said Bell. “I can’t thank anyone anymore.

“Hopefully I’ll be there as more of a Member again and I’ve gone full circle.

“I’ll be there having a beer, watching the guys and bumping into guys when hopefully we get back to normal!”
