Openers Ben Slater (76) and Ben Duckett (43) added 75 for the first wicket before Clarke excelled in his first Championship innings for his new county. South African paceman Duanne Olivier, making his Championship debut for the visitors, finished the day with 2-74, while Matthew Waite took 1-66 and claimed a catch to remove Duckett.
