Durban - News that Proteas coach Russell Domingo has to re-apply for his job has not distracted the team ahead of the second ODI against Sri Lanka on Wednesday, star batsman Hashim Amla has said.

Domingo was told by his bosses that the coaching position of the national side will be advertised at the end of the tour to England in August and he would have to go through the interview process again.

The coaching support staff, which includes assistant Adrian Birrell, bowling coach Charl Langeveldt, batting coach Neil McKenzie, spin consultant Claude Henderson and fitness trainer Greg King, could all be affected by a change of head coach.

Amla though says everyone is still as professional as always as the Proteas look to build on their victory in the first ODI against the Asian opponents.

The right-handed batsman commented on the matter: "It hasn't affected the coaches too much. They still seem extremely motivated, which is brilliant. They have been professional in everything they have done.

"Don't forget it's still six or seven months away, which is a long time. In between that, we have so many different challenges to keep our focus on."
