Warwickshire Bears still in transition, says sport director Ashley Giles

Warwickshire sport director Ashley Giles says the arrival of latest signing Adam Hose from Somerset and the planned end-of-season return of Rikki Clarke to Surrey is all part of a transition process at Edgbaston.

On top of former skipper Varun Chopra's exit back to Essex late last summer and Ian Westwood's mid-season retirement, and the signing of Will Rhodes from Yorkshire Clarke's departure marks a further step in the Bears' latest regeneration under Giles and coach Jim Troughton.
