Michael Vaughan believes that Ian Bell knew he had "messed up" during his controversial run out in the second Test against India but gave the impression of not really knowing what all the fuss was about to get a reprieve from the visiting side.
Vaughan said Bell was well aware of his folly but pretended that he didn't know what had happened.
"Bell was dozy and he knew it. He saw Praveen Kumar's reaction on the boundary and thought it had gone for four. He even appeared to give the indication that it had gone for four to Eoin Morgan.
"But crucially the umpire had said nothing. He did not call four and he did not call tea. When the bails were taken off and Bell turned round to see what was happening he knew he had made a mistake," Vaughan wrote in the Daily Telegraph.
Vaughan said while England seem to be on a high, India look liked a jaded unit.
"They are a team with only two or three guys in form. In England, I see a team with eight or nine playing well. India look tired of playing cricket and England full of zest," he said.
