I guess Clarke buggering off to Surrey hasn’t helped either. He always used to be good for wickets/late order runs. In fact, it always seems to be the case against Warwickshire that its your lower order that gets more runs. Can think of occasions in recent years where Clarke/Barker/Patel/Ambrose have scored heavily, but not many of the top order doing so.
Which is exactly whats happened here. 49/6 at lunch on the first day and look at it now. These two are doing a great job, and if they do get us over the line, itll probably be enough to stay up, but we really need a clearout in the winter regardless.
