Ian Bell is looking to cement his place in the top four in England's one-day batting line-up, starting with a big knock at the venue of his only limited-overs century to date.
"I would say anywhere in the top four - to go out and bat and build an innings and go through the gears," he said, on his favoured position
"That would be a strength of mine - be aggressive up front and bat through the spinners and then accelerate."
"I've got an idea about how to play in one-day cricket and I guess I've seen glimpses of that.
"I'm not the kind of guy who is going to hit the ball into a few rows back and I have to go over extra-cover or whatever and use the skills that I have and find boundaries that way.
"I try to learn off 'Morgs' [Eoin Morgan] in how he plays the spinners and scores boundaries off the front and back foot."
Bell has previously had the chance to grab a top-four slot, but feels he is a more complete batsman than he was back then.
"I wasn't as good a player as I am now, so it's nice to get that opportunity again," he said.
"I've got to be flexible, and we have a batting order that can chop and change.
"Whether I bat six or four or open, I just have to be flexible.
"Not having one position that I have stayed in for a long period of time has not allowed me to score the number of runs that I would like.
"But if you take squads to competitions you are going to need that flexibility, I see that as a strength - even if I haven't stayed in one place long enough to nail one down."
England are likely to make one change to their side for Tuesday's second one-dayer, with a fit-again Graeme Swann returning in place of Samit Patel.
