0 ECB's roller ban is contributing to our batting struggles, says Gidman

Alex Gidman claims the England and Wales Cricket Board's decision to ban the use of the heavy roller during County Championship matches is conspiring against Gloucestershire.

Bowled out with indecent haste for 119 in their second innings yesterday, Gloucestershire slumped to a 207-run defeat at the hands of Division Two title favourites Sussex, a worrying margin in such a low-scoring game.

Having seen his side comfortably beaten by Northants and Sussex in the space of a week, captain Gidman believes the new regulations affecting county groundsmen, combined with the impact of the swinging Tiflex ball, is making life extremely uncomfortable for batsmen in Bristol.
