Manchester: Out of favour India opener Gautam Gambhir's woeful form in the county circuit continued as he failed to make a significant contribution for the third time in-a-row during a one day game for the Yorkshire Bank Pro 40 Championship.

Gambhir made only 2 after Essex captain James Foster elected to bat at the Old Trafford ground.

The left-hander, who is fighting to make a comeback into the Indian team had scored 31 in a first-class game against Northamptonshire and 21 in a Pro-40 game against Derbyshire.

Gambhir was the first batsman to get out after facing nine deliveries as he poked at an away-going delivery of seamer Kabir Ali which was snapped up by veteran South African Ashwell Prince in the slip cordon on Monday.

Gambhir will still get a few matches to make a mark before the Indian domestic season begins.
