Warwickshire are without injured captain Darren Maddy for the trip to Gloucestershire in Division Two of the LV County Championship.

Maddy suffered a broken thumb in his side's last Championship outing against Middlesex, and will be out for another month.

Left-hand batsman Ian Westwood, who was captain in Monday's Friends Provident Trophy win over Leicestershire, is set to be named skipper again while Navdeep Poonia replaces Maddy at the top of the order.

Veteran leg-spinner Ian Salisbury is also out with a calf problem and there is also no place for South Africa fast bowler Monde Zondeki.

Seam bowling duo Neil Carter and Chris Woakes come in - the latter making his championship debut.

England duo Ian Bell and Tim Ambrose are unavailable.

Gloucestershire have seamer and captain Jon Lewis back in their 12-man squad for the game.

Ireland captain William Porterfield is also in the line-up, as Will Rudge misses out from the team that faced Worcestershire two weeks ago.

Chris Taylor and Steve Snell hit big hundreds last time out and they will be looking to entertain at what is the popular Gloucester Cricket Festival which takes place at King's School in the town.
