England middle order batsman Ian Bell’s scored 2nd successive score of 109  which followed his 115 in the final Test in Sydney in 2010-11 made him only the fourth English batsman to score hundreds in three successive Tests against Australia, following by Sir Jack Hobbs in 1911-12 and again done in 1924-25, Walter Hammond  did it in 1928-29 and Chris Broad in 1986-87. Bob Woolmer scored hundreds in three successive Ashes Tests in 1975 and 1977, but in the middle played against Australia in the Centenary Test in Melbourne, a one-off match in which the Ashes were not at stake. Sir Don Bradman scored centuries in eight successive Ashes Tests in which he batted between 1936-37 and 1946-47 that excludes the 1938 Oval Test, when Don Bradman was unable to bat while carrying injury.
