Profile

A late bloomer, Will Gidman spent four years at Durham and only played for the first XI once, working in Sports Direct to top up his income. But Gloucestershire gave him a new opportunity and he grasped the nettle in 2011 by becoming the first man to achieve the double of 1,000 runs and 50 wickets in a debut season. He was also the seventh player of all-time to achieve the feat.
