Cape Town - Proteas coach Russell Domingo says Jacques Kallis is likely to bat in the No 3 position during the upcoming one-day series in Sri Lanka.

Kallis, 38, is back in the Proteas' ODI plans with an eye on next year's Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

In an interview with the ESPNcricinfo website, Domingo said Kallis "will probably slot back into" the No 3 position for the three-match ODI series, which starts in Colombo on Sunday.

Domingo said they will try to be as "consistent as possible" with their batting order as they build-up to next year's showpiece event.

Kallis has batted at No 3 197 times in his 311 ODI innings, scoring 7 769 runs at an average of 46.52. It is marginally higher than his overall average of 44.86. He has also scored 13 of his 17 centuries at No 3.
