Ian Bell does a bit of something - no real news though

Every sports story has an 'angle'; a way to draw in the reader; a uniting theme for the piece. The angle for the first day of the fifth Ashes Test seems to be that Ian Bell hit a 50, but couldn't make a hundred, which is a pretty lame angle.

Presumably the amassed ranks of journalists had already penned their 'Bell redemptive hundred' stories and then had them dashed when he'd only reached 71. No-one else did much of anything and the Warne/McGrath/Langer stories will have to wait in the wings for nearer the end of the match.
