Warwickshire remain favourites to complete a fourth win of their LV= Insurance County Championship season, and stay in contention for the Division One title, despite Joe Clarke posting his first century in first-class cricket since September 2021.

Nottinghamshire were following on after being bowled out for just 155 in reply to Warwickshire’s 571 for nine declared but despite Clarke’s impressive performance they remain 149 runs behind at the close of the third day at 267 for four and a second new ball available to the visiting bowlers after just two more overs.
