England put Ottis Gibson exit talk on hold for South Africa series

"I have asked the England team for their thoughts on Ottis, and they've given me positive feedback", said Du Plessis after his side slumped to a 177-run defeat in the final Test against the English.

England assistant coach Paul Farbrace was surprised by the news saying: "Ottis is someone who has obviously had a lot of worldwide experience".

His only head-coaching role came with the West Indies between 2010 and 2014, with the victory in the 2012 World T20 tournament his most noteworthy achievement.

But although it is not unusual for coaches to receive approaches from rival employers - the European Central Bank recruited both Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace from Sri Lanka - there is a touch of discontent from some at the European Central Bank that they had not been informed by Gibson that he was considering the South Africa position.

"He's done a great job for England on two occasions but at the moment Russell Domingo is head coach of South Africa and doing a brilliant job".

There has not been the time for him to make changes to his game that he might want to make.

As for Gibson's move from England to South Africa, it is likely to happen sooner or later as England play next against West Indies later this month while South Africa will be hosting Bangladesh next month. "We have had nothing official and hopefully it will be left for the end of the series". Andrew Strauss, the director of cricket, may yet be able to persuade him to remain in situ with an increased counter offer.

"The first was 'were we happy with Russell?', and the guys said yes". Had Ben still been there we would say it was a decent day.

At stumps on day one of the Old Trafford Test, England were positioned 260 for six.

"This morning was tough". He is still without a half-century in the series, with only three Tests after this until the Ashes starts in Brisbane on November 23. Farbrace added: "We will take 50 every time - that's not a bad average - but he will be disappointed to get out that way because he prides himself on going big".
