A Fan Favorite Incident of Bairstow Catching his team mate Moeen Ali’s Six had happened yesterday on the 3rd Day of the Final Test of England vs South Africa. Moeen Ali scored an excellent half century, leading England to a safe zone after England was struggling at 134/6 on the end of the 3rd day of the Final test of England vs South Africa Test Series. England ended the day with a lead of 360 runs thanks to an important inning of Moeen Ali. Moeen Ali stayed not out at 67 at the end of the day.
The Incident happened when Moeen Ali had played a huge six to complete his half century. Jonny Bairstow, who was watching the important Moeen Ali’s innings from the Players’ Stands, brilliantly caught the ball to everybody’s surprise.
Bairstow played an equally important inning too at the first innings of the same match. He played a beautiful inning at the lower order to put a decent score as the first innings total. Although he was unlucky to get out at 99 and missed out a much deserved century, he has done the job of putting a respectable first innings score of 362 for his team.

Day 4, England vs South Africa – What to expect?
With England at a lead of 260 runs and two wickets in hand, the match is slightly on the side of the hosting nation, who are actually in their prime form. South Africa, on the other hand, has been brilliant in their second innings bowling, before Moeen Ali playing the important innings once again.
It will not also be so wrong to say that the match is very evenly poised now with both the teams has their chance of bringing up a victory from here. The First session tomorrow will be very important as South Africa wants to finish them up early to chase a decent target which is below 400.
England, on the other hand, will try to post a total more than 400, which will give them a psychological lead over the visiting nation.
With all three results possible, it will be the most important day of this whole series. Indians can watch this match in Star Sports and US viewers can enjoy this most important day at SLING, with a 7-day Free Trial.
