by August 10th, 2017

South Africa test captain Faf du Plessis has confirmed England bowling coach Otis Gibson has been recommended for the nation’s coaching role.

The former West Indies coach Gibson has been viewed as the favourite to take over, with the incumbent Russell Domingo having been asked to reapply for his job.

The Proteas slumped to a 3-1 test series defeat to England on Monday, having already been defeated by the same opposition in the one-day international and Twenty/20 series.

Gibson, is now poised to assume the role, with du Plessis imploring him not to make sweeping changes to his staff.
