Bell comes of age as Test batsman

Ian Bell came of age as an England batsman on Friday with a monumental 199 on the second day of the first Test against South Africa at Lord's in London.

Bell found an ideal lieutenant in the increasingly impressive Stuart Broad, who stroked 76 at number eight, as England reached a seemimgly impregnable 593 for eight when Michael Vaughan declared.

South Africa were seven without loss in reply before rain and bad light brought a premature end to the day's play.
