The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have said they had not received any approach from Cricket South Africa (CSA) for Ottis Gibson amid reports he was poised to become the Proteas' new head coach. Bairstow's enterprising and entertaining knock ensured England made a good first-innings total of 362.

Gibson, who was reappointed as the bowling coach of England team in 2015 has emerged as the leading candidate for replacing Proteas coach Russell Domingo, who had reapplied for the post that he claimed four years back.

An unbeaten half-century by Moeen Ali cements England's stronghold over South Africa on day three of the final Test at Old Trafford. He picked up the wicket of Dean Elgar for a duck before lunch, trapping the South African opener lbw with just his third delivery.

England appear likely to be looking for a new bowling coach ahead of the Ashes after it emerged that Ottis Gibson, now in the position, is set to take over as South Africa's new head coach. Moeen was especially severe on Maharaj, hitting him for three resounding sixes.

But Moeen took the game to the left-arm spinner, putting on a 58-run partnership with Toby Roland-Jones and eliminating the concern over the rough with positive footwork.

CSA has said that a final decision will be announced after the England series, which ends on August 8.

The Fire Department also confirmed that it had recovered two bodies in the wreckage, but it did not disclose their identities. HCMC tweeted at 9:19 p.m. that they are now treating four people - one is critical and three are in satisfactory condition.


Although nothing official will be announced until the end of the Manchester Test, England's assistant coach Paul Farbrace appeared to inadvertently confirm Gibson's move after the first day's play at Old Trafford.

Bairstow's resistance culminated in a 50-run stand with last-man Anderson and, illustrating how well he controlled the back end of the England innings, Bairstow scored 46 of those 50 runs, and 66 of the 102 runs England added in the morning.

South Africa must win the test to draw the series.

Morne Morkel was luckless yet terrific right through the series. Getting mocked by his captain Joe Root, as his Yorkshire and England team-mate mocked his celebratory wave to the crowd.

Olivier's fall meant James Anderson was denied a maiden five-wicket Test innings haul at his Lancashire home ground. He had gotten rid of Alastair Cook several times in the series and did it yet again at Old Trafford in the second innings, eking out an outside edge with a fuller ball.
