Gloucestershire captain Alex Gidman has been ruled out of the next two FL t20 games against Hampshire and Middlesex after suffering a quad injury.

The 30-year-old could also miss the County Championship match with Middlesex, which starts next Monday.

Gidman hit 76 not out in Gloucestershire's win over Surrey earlier this week, which helped them move up to third in Division Two.

Kane Williamson will take on the captaincy in his absence.
