Lewis stands down
Jon Lewis has announced his intention to relinquish his role as Gloucestershire club captain after spending three years at the helm.
Lewis has not played in all of Gloucestershire’s games during that time, with England call-ups and injuries meaning he has had to miss out on several fixtures, with Chris Taylor or Alex Gidman deputising on those occasions.
Lewis said: “I have been extremely proud to have been captain of Gloucestershire over the past three seasons. I would like to thank the supporters for their commitment to me and the team.
“I have given my all to the cause and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge but feel the time is right for a fresh start. I look forward to focusing on improving my game so that I can play my best cricket for Gloucestershire.”
Gloucestershire chief executive Tom Richardson added: “We all wish to thank Jon Lewis for his efforts for the club as captain for the past three years.
“This year, in particular, he has taken on significantly more responsibility and we are extremely grateful to him.
“As an experienced senior player and international cricketer he still has a great deal to offer both on and off the field.”
