South Africa's coach Russell Domingo wanted his newer Test players to cement their places during the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.

With only two additions to the squad that toured Australia - in reserve batsman Theunis de Bruyn and left-arm seamer Wayne Parnell - changes to South Africa's XI from the Adelaide Test were unlikely.

"We've only decided to pick 13 for this series. It gives us a few less selection problems and gives the incumbents a sense of security and they can focus really hard on their preparation and not worry too much about selection. It just makes it a lot clearer and a lot more simplistic," Domingo said.

"The young players have really come in and stepped up. They are all new players that, a year and a half ago, were playing debut Test matches and now they've become established in the side. That's very pleasing to see."
