"I've thought about it in the past, and the pressure can get to you - but I've tried to keep my mind clear and keep it as simple as I can". They're very, very fortunate with the all-rounders.
"Twenty-five wickets in the series!" The Essex batsman is playing just his second Test and will be given time to prove himself at No3 given he scored a half-century on debut at The Oval last week.
"I've said before that he must be a nightmare to captain and coach because, at times, he does silly things".
But for the third time in as many innings he fell to Middlesex paceman Toby Roland-Jones, "strangled" down the legside Saturday as wicket-keeper Bairstow claimed his 100th Test dismissal.
They were soon dashed, though, as Moeen completed a fine individual performance by removing Morkel and Duanne Olivier in successive balls to round off an ultimately resounding England victory.
'For that reason, I think they should drop Keaton Jennings. You find out about yourself in global cricket and so do the opposition. "Sometimes you have to take the odd risk".
However, just as England were starting to get anxious, with the Proteas pair beginning to dominate - Amla had lifted in Moeen Ali into the Old Pavilion for six - the off-spinner struck.
England replaced Hampshire spinner Liam Dawson with batsman Middlesex Dawid Malan after their second-Test hammering at Trent Bridge and Root seems happy to stick with the five-batter ploy. However, they got back into the game with a century partnership between Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis. It was not a usual Test-cricket-knock as one might expect, but Moeen had the confidence to look in the eyes of the bowlers despite wickets falling all around. He's their No 1 cricketer at the moment, arguably.
Maharaj, who took an economical two for 48 in 30.4 overs, added: "I'm pleased on a personal note but it's unfortunate we're 2-1 down in the series". He's opened the batting, he's batted at numbers three through nine, he's been their first spinner, he's been their second spinner, albeit only in name - he'd probably even drive the team bus if he was asked to, no doubt in an unassuming, languid style.
"We've had to overcome different challenges but the way we've played as a unit, especially in these last two games, we've been brilliant", Root said.
For now England have beaten the No2 ranked team in the world while effectively at times carrying three passengers, partly due to their own bad judgement in picking Gary Ballance and Liam Dawson for the first two Tests, and that could easily be viewed as a positive.
