“We are going to get greedy and try and repeat that at the Oval [in next week’s final Test], but we can think about that with sore heads tomorrow,” he said. “We’ll enjoy what is a very special day and one that I’m going to look back on with huge fondness.”
Earlier, the home team were bowled out for 330 in their second innings, with in-form Ian Bell hitting 113 and Australia paceman Ryan Harris taking seven wickets for the first time in his Test career.
Clarke was in disconsolate mood when he looked back at the day’s play.
“A lot of things are hard to swallow at the moment,” he said. “Obviously our middle order find different ways to get out which is extremely disappointing, but I have to pay credit to Stuart Broad — I think his performance was exceptional.”
