Gidman stands down as Gloucestershire captain
Alex Gidman has stepped down as Gloucestershire captain after four years in the role. The club endured a disappointing 2012 season, finishing bottom of the County Championship, although Gidman has said his decision is due to him wanting to focus on batting.
Gidman, 31, who previously served three years as vice-captain, scored 528 runs at 25.14 in the Championship.
Gidman said: “I am very proud of the contribution I have been able to make as Gloucestershire captain. But I have not enjoyed the role as much this season and feel the time is right for someone else to take over.
