David Murphy comes into the Steelbacks line-up for tonight’s clash with Gloucestershire Gladiators at Bristol.

Murphy replaces first-choice wicketkeeper Niall O’Brien, who is representing Ireland against Australia in a one-day international in Belfast on Sunday.

Gloucestershire, who have Sri Lankan spin king Muttiah Muralitharan in their ranks are, like their visitors tonight, also without a win in this season’s competition.

Steelbacks: Newton, Coetzer, Murphy, White, Wakely, Willey, Middlebrook, de Lange, Keogh, Vaas, Brooks, Howgego.

Gloucestershire: Marshall, Williamson, Cockbain, Gidman, Taylor, Housego, Young, Fuller, Batty, Payne, Saxelby, Muchall, Muralitharan.
