It's Right In Front Of You

Cup of tea. Tick.

Sharpened pencil. Tick.

Dictionary. Tick.

Where did we get to? Oh, yes.

16 Down, ‘A cider mixed to “a T' goes east, so do away with it (9)’ is ‘eradicate’.

What else?

Well, 19 Down, ‘Sounds like a chap is very sincere (7)’ is ‘earnest’ and for 1 Down, ‘No runs at cricket as males in feathers play games (5,3,6)’ we now have ‘ducks and drakes’.

We’re getting there. Just a few gaps. But what about 18 Across, ‘Confused Bard nearly lost blood doing this (8)’? We’ve got ‘d-a---e’. Hmm.

Now what could that be?
