JOHANNESBURG - Upon his team's arrival in South Africa, Proteas coach Russel Domingo was upbeat saying his team learnt some valuable lessons in Sri Lanka.

Lonwabo Tsotsobe's participation in the team was questioned with Domingo saying Tsotsobe wasn't originally picked in the 15 man squad because of his fitness.

But after canvassing some opinions, the coach decided to bring the Lions man along saying he's still a key figure for South Africa in ODI cricket.

T20 captain Faf du Plessis complimented his charges for their efforts in winning the Twenty20 series on Sri Lankan soil, saying the tough conditions taught them some valuable lessons, lessons they can definitely build on in the future.
