Kent have shown good fight this season, thus far. I don’t think they can be faulted on that score. And they’re still below full-strength.

As for Clarke, it would scarcely qualify as a surprise if his mind had been scrambled by the illegal activity committed by his friend, the rapist, and by criticism of the unsavoury, though not illegal, activities in which they were jointly involved - stupid Whatsapp bed-notching games, that is.

More widely, it’s true that almost all of the runs that Duckett has made at county level came in CC2 and (I would guess) that about half of Clarke’s will also have done so. So it’s hardly as though either are proven world-beaters, so their struggles are more likely to point toward the fact that they’re not as good as Notts thought they were and, in Clarke’s case, weighed down by off-field affairs, than it is that they somehow don’t care. It is also probable that confidence is low. Ben Slater also came from CC2 and he didn’t even have a good record at that level. It shouldn’t be that much of a surprise that two players plucked from CC2 are not setting the world alight in CC1.

Should Warks ever manage to get their act together, then Notts might be relegated.

To be honest, I feel that Notts have shown a pathetic lack of fight in most of the 7 straight CC defeats that we have inflicted on them, most of which didn’t involve Duckett, Clarke or Slater.
