England vs South Africa 2017, 4th Test: Day 3, 5 talking points

Damon Campbell | 07 August, 2017, 01:12

A rampant Moeen Ali took away the game in the fading twilight at Old Trafford but the game continued to enthral fans around the globe. Getting mocked by his captain Joe Root, as his Yorkshire and England team-mate mocked his celebratory wave to the crowd.

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.

Moeen made South Africa pay for Dean Elgar dropping him on 15 when a low slip chance off Keshav Maharaj did not stick.

England was in control for nearly the whole day, except for a short period at the start when South Africa took three wickets in five overs to have England at 312-9.

Moeen Ali's half-century has all but put the game beyond South Africa.

England have just three tests against the West Indies in which to settle on their lineup for this winter's Ashes squad, and it is entirely reasonable to say they can be no clearer yet about the staffing of much of their top and middle order.

England player Jonathan Bairstow raises the ball after taking a catch off a Moeen Ali six on the players' balcony. He has done a great job for England but at the moment Russell Domingo is head coach of South Africa and doing a brilliant job, so it would be disrespectful of us to talk about his position.

Despite being set for a morale-boosting Test victory over South Africa, selectors will be anxious about the batting line-up with just three Tests against a depleted West Indies to come before they travel to Australia for the biggest Test series of them all against Australia. Rabada bowled a short-length delivery and Jennings, failing to read the line and cramped of room, cut the ball straight to Hashim Amla at slip for an easy catch.

Morne Morkel was 18 not out after Rabada (23) was brilliantly caught by a diving Ben Stokes in the gully off Stuart Broad.

Olivier, who also dismissed Bairstow, ended the day with fine figures of 3 for 38 but that was scant consolation to his side.

But the wicket of Jennings eluded Morkel because of Elgar's drop, allowing England to reach lunch on 53 for 2. Olivier struck again, being able to move the ball late to Stokes whose forward defense edged the ball to Faf du Plessis.
