Galle - The Proteas will hope that Test wicketkeeper AB de Villiers will recover from injury in time for the start of the first Test starting on Wednesday in Galle.

De Villiers is suffering from a tight right hamstring and was not able to keep wicket during Monday's training session.

The tightness was first experienced while batting in the last ODI in Hambantota on Saturday.

He will continue to receive treatment and is likely to be available for selection for Wednesday's match.
