Klinger to miss Gloucester pre-season

Michael Klinger will miss Gloucestershire’s pre-season programme to avoid burnout.

Director of cricket John Bracewell said: "Michael will have a chance to freshen up with a holiday with his family on their way to England.

"That is going to be very important to him after so much virtually uninterrupted cricket."

Klinger is scheduled to captain Gloucester against Hampshire on April 13.
