Like Jonny Bairstow's 99 in the first innings, Ali's brisk half-century ensured England didn't succumb when under pressure, this time at 153-7.

Former Aussie Test quick Jason Gillesie, who interviewed for the England head coach role back in 2015 after an impressive stint at Yorkshire, confirmed to cricket.com.au on Saturday that reports in the United Kingdom linking him to the job were the first he'd heard of the news.

An unbeaten half-century by Moeen Ali cements England's stronghold over South Africa on day three of the final Test at Old Trafford.

Anderson had success with the third ball of the South African innings when he removed Dean Elgar lbw for a duck with a trademark swinging delivery that beat the opener and rapped into his front pad.

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.

"I had a few hacks early on that I got away with but I felt the situation of the game needed a little impetus, a few shots". But I just want that last wicket, I don't care who gets it.

The right-arm pacer, however, said he could not care less who closes out the Proteas innings as England continue on their path towards a 3-1 series win.

Rabada removed Toby Roland-Jones (11) and Moeen lofted Maharaj over midwicket for another maximum to further underline England's position of strength before the rain that had threatened since lunch finally arrived.

The contract of Russell Domingo, South Africa's current coach, runs out at the end of this series and it is understood Gibson has already been chosen to replace him.

Another individual who may find his involvement with England end with the series, temporarily at least, is Keaton Jennings. With this, Olivier dismissed Root in both the occasions in the match.

Broad had earlier claimed the final wicket of South Africa's first innings.

Knowing the importance of a good start, Faf du Plessis gave Morne Morkel an eight-over spell up front that yielded the wickets of Alastair Cook and Tom Westley.

Anderson will return on Sunday one wicket short of his 23rd career five-for, and his first in front of the James Anderson end.
