Who was Bill Bell?

William "Bill" Bell, born 5 September 1931 at Dunedin and died at Auckland on 23 July 2002, was a cricketer who played for Canterbury, Auckland and New Zealand.

A leg spin and googly bowler and lower-order batsman, Bell had played only five first-class games when he was picked for the New Zealand tour of South Africa in 1953-54 when regular spinner Alex Moir was left out of the touring party. An early return of four wickets against Eastern Province suggested he might do well, but in two Test match appearances, at Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, he took just two wickets, and was never picked again.
