Video - Massive Day Ahead - Ian Bell

England batsman Ian Bell says that the fourth day of the fourth Ashes Test at Chester-le-Street will be a massive day for both sides as they battle for the series win.

Bell batted beuatifully on day three to make an unbeaten 105 to take England from a precarious position at 49 for three to an overall lead of 202 at stumps, and says he is in some of the best form of his career.

"I think I had a little period against Sri Lanka in India in 2011 which felt pretty good but this is right up there for my and my career now," he said.

However, he is putting the milestone of reaching 20 Test centuries behind him and putting the team's goal of winning the series first.

"The important thing for us as a group was winning the Ashes. We've done decently so far.

"Tomorrow is a massive day for us but I haven't really thought to much about that (his current form). There will be time to think about that when I've finished my cricket.

"For me, tomorrow morning is the most important thing. Try and get as many runs as we can on this pitch and give our bowlers the opportunity," he added.
