England bowling coach Ottis Gibson favourite for South Africa head coach job

England bowling coach Ottis Gibson has been tipped to take over as South Africa head coach

"Ottis is someone who has obviously had a lot of worldwide experience", he added.

Gibson's possible departure throws a spanner in the Ashes plans and could see England turn to an interim solution for the winter, either from the European Central Bank coaching set up at Loughborough or the counties.

Assistant coach Paul Farbrace said: "We've heard the news but I promise you we have had nothing official. It's hopefully all being left now until the end of the series".

"He did a great job for the West Indies, won the Twenty20 World Cup as a head coach, (then) lost out in a semi-final against Sri Lanka". He has also had experience as a head coach so let's see what happens.

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.

Russell Domingo, the present South Africa head coach, is out of contract after the end of this Test match, although The Times understands that he has reapplied for the job after Cricket South Africa (CSA) advertised the position on May 18.

Domingo confirmed he had put himself in contention and had been interviewed but Lions' coach Geoffrey Toyana was thought to be the front-runner, having had success at domestic level.

Other names in the hat include former Titans and current Otago coach Rob Walter and another West Indian Phil Simmons.

Ottis Gibson was coach of West Indies before rejoining England and taking up his previous role as the bowling specialist.

England's only success in an away series in the past 30 years came back in 2010-11 when they had an Australian bowling coach in David Saker in their set-up. Farbrace said: "The last five minutes we'll be disappointed with".
