Sibley for Clarke?

Mmm I'd take that. Must admit I don't know much about Adam Hose from Somerset.

Hose has signed. Know nothing about him.

He got a hundred in the royal London cup. Ashley has a reputation of picking players up from other counties where there career is going nowhere. hopefully a success here.

Somerset see the loss of Hose as a severe blow, which says a lot.

I saw Adam Hose score 194 for Somerset 2ndXI against Warwickshire 2ndXI at Portland Road this season, transforming a total of 139-5 into 513-7 declared, so that innings will have influenced the Bears management approach for him. In his second season at the county he has only recently been given an opportunity in Somerset's Championship team after repeated collective poor first team batting performances. So can only assume that the 3 year length of contract and possible increase in salary offered has persuaded him to join the Bears. Will provide added competition for a first team place probably in Division 2 next season though may need to outperform Sam Hain, Matt Lamb and Ateeq Javid to obtain an opportunity. Bears have plenty of talented young middle order batsmen but still require an opener to partner Andy Umeed, with only the aggressive Ed Pollock and Liam Banks as alternatives to Will Porterfield.

What sort of reputation? Which players?

I think that he means that during his time as Director of Cricket, Ashley brought in Varun Chopra, Rikki Clarke, Will Porterfield, Boyd Rankin and Chris Wright, all of whom were members of the 2012 County Championship winning side and most were in the teams that won the One Day finals in 2010 and 2015 and the t20 in 2014.

Up until this season, Hose played mainly as an opener so maybe that's the role envisaged for him.

Disappointed to see him go, and a little surprised he's going to Surrey as I would have thought that there's going to be quite a bit of competition for places there. Hose sounds encouraging though and I'd like to see us sign Sibley.

Adam Hose is a very tall lad who has been used mostly as a pinch hitting type opener in white ball cricket. We need depth in our limited overs batting and he will provide that. It's a bit of a flyer to suggest he could make a good red ball player - I've only seen him play one CC game for Somerset and he didn't do much - but I would say it is a punt worth taking.

I wasn't a fan of Rikki Clarke when he first arrived but he has won me over in recent years and Warwickshire owes him a debt - especially this year when the seam bowling has been so thin. I hope things work out for him at Surrey although he'll be pushed to get ahead of the Curran's now.

Perhaps Clarke can push his way in because he bats as well but Footitt never really forced his way in so Rikki might find it a really big challenge.

Somewhat sad to hear Rikki is leaving but I suppose all good things come to an end. It makes sense for both Warwickshire and Rikki. But I think we should put on record just how much we all appreciate his contribution since he made the move to Edgbaston. Well liked by all supporters we wish him well at Surrey.

Thanks to Rikki for all his efforts here. I can understand why he'd be after a two-year contract but I just can't see him playing much there.
Lara, Tendulkar ... Pilling.

Ashley talks here about the transition process and getting the right people on the bus:

Good piece Terry. I am quite encouraged by recent developments. Some of our own youngsters actually delivering and sensible recruitment. Not near-England stars who will disappear to international sides but players who have the potential to be solid county cricketers. It's happening a couple of years later than it should have done but at least it's happening.

Continuing Ashley's metaphor of getting the right people on the bus, I think there is a clearer sense now that someone is driving the bus and knows both the destination and the route to take.

Rikki Clarke 7-55 v Somerset today.
I'm glad that the move seems to be working out for him.
