3. FAF DOES SOME GIBSON-GATING

Ottis Gibson has been heavily linked with the Proteas head coach role over the past few days without any official word coming out of Cricket South Africa (CSA).

However, Test and T20 skipper Faf du Plessis took it into his own hands to almost confirm the appointment when the Proteas arrived home.

Du Plessis had done some investigating prior to leaving England and tried to find out the character of Gibson from England cricketers.
