Bell urges England selectors not to make 'rash decisions' for final two Ashes Tests

Sydney, Dec 22 : Ian Bell has urged England's selectors to give the same players a chance to redeem themselves in the final two Tests despite their 3-0 Ashes humiliation, according to reports.

According to, England are in danger of a 5-0 whitewash after Australia wrapped up the series so emphatically in Perth.

While Bell admits England have been outplayed in all departments and deserve to be 3-0 down, he has cautioned against making wholesale changes to the long-established team, the report said.

He said that the management should be very careful on those decisions, adding that it is very easy to make rash decisions when one is quite emotional but he believes there are some good players in the team.

He added that players don't become bad overnight and although things haven't gone right lately, players have been doing a lot of good things for a long time and that does not change things.

He further said that England are still a very good Test side and certainly don't want to lose 5-0.
