What went wrong...................................................................................................................................................

My simple answer to that question was that in 2016, Middlesex won every match when there was a hint of victory (indeed, I would say that at least half of our six wins came in matches when, at one point, victory seemed improbable or impossible), and we ensured that we drew every match when we were outplayed or when conditions meant that the match barely advanced. Conversely, the opposite seemed to happen in the three subsequent seasons, when we often failed to convert good performances into wins instead of draws, and often failed to convert bad performances into draws instead of defeats.

An article in Wisden Cricket Monthly with the views of Ollie Rayner, James Franklin, Kevin Hand and Stuart Law gives a more detailed answer to the question.
