Ian Bell is pleased to see that Somerset's Nick Compton has been included in the England squad that is due to tour India this winter.

Ian Bell believes that the ECB were right to include Nick Compton in the England Test squad for November's four-match tour of India.

The 29-year-old impressed during the recent county season for Somerset, having recorded an average of 99 runs.

Speaking about Compton's call-up, Bell has likened the right-hander to current number three batsman Jonathan Trott.

"He's been a very consistent player and has made big strides," said Bell. "He's a bit like Jonathan Trott. Once he gets in, he tends to go on and make big runs."

Compton is the grandson of former England cricketer and Arsenal footballer Denis Compton.
