Cape Town - AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bat first in the Castle Lager Proteas’ 50-over warm-up match against a Sri Lanka Development XI at the Colts Cricket Ground in Colombo on Wednesday.

The Proteas have opted for two frontline spinners, with Alviro Petersen coming in to partner with Hashim Amla at the top of the innings.

Morne Morkel returns after recovering from the groin injury he sustained during the ICC Champions Trophy last month.
