Profile

Alex Gidman is a functional middle-order batsman that briefly flirted with higher honours. Not the most aesthetically-pleasing player, he has nevertheless been a solid performer for Gloucestershire for over a decade and served as club captain from 2009-2012. Thought of as a one-club man, he surprisingly left his home county at the end of the 2014 season to finish his career at Worcestershire.
