  • Highlights from the first day of the fourth Test between England and South Africa at Old Trafford

Bairstow had still guided England from the precarious position of 260-6 overnight to a now-formidable 362.

England remain strong favourites to win the fourth cricket test against South Africa after Moeen Ali's late strokeplay arrested their second innings slide.

But Moeen - dropped at slip by Dean Elgar off Keshav Maharaj when just 15 - had other ideas, taking the attack to the tourists to the delight of an increasingly raucous crowd, who took particular pleasure in the left-hander thrice depositing his spin counterpart over the ropes.

There's likely more to come from Ali, too, as he ended unbeaten and took England to stumps on Day 3 on 224-8, a slightly wobbly second innings but enough to open a convincing lead with two days to play. Moeen was especially severe on Maharaj, hitting him for three resounding sixes. But figures of 4 for 38 in 17 overs gave Anderson his best innings return in seven Tests at Old Trafford.

"I felt like I couldn't bowl badly, certainly this morning", he said. "But I'm thrilled by the honour and it's nice to get some wickets", the Guardian quoted Anderson as saying. But I just want that last wicket, I don't care who gets it.

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.

Tom Westley has looked very composed in his own introduction to Test cricket at No3 but his potential weakness outside off-stump was again exposed by Morne Morkel today and needs a big score against West Indies to prove to himself that he is capable of belonging in exalted company.

Theunis de Bruyn tried to drive a full-length delivery from Anderson but was undone by the movement and edged to England skipper Joe Root at second slip.

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

With Russell Domingo's current deal to lead the Proteas running out at the end of the current series against England, the highly-regarded Gibson has emerged as the front-runner to take over.

That left James Anderson high and dry on 4/38 - one scalp shy of what would have been his first five-wicket haul in tests at his home ground‚ where an end was named after him before the match.
