Johannesburg - Proteas captain AB de Villiers says he is "not going to panic" after the side's disappointing performance in the first ODI series match against Sri Lanka in Colombo on Saturday.
"I still believe that the series is wide open, I know how dangerous my team can be if we play well and do the basics well.
The second ODI series match is on Tuesday. South Africa had a 180-run thrashing in the first match, the bowlers giving away 137 runs in the last 11 overs. Kumar Sangakkara took full advantage, posting his highest ODI score of 169.
"We didn't bowl and bat as well as we could. I think if we had wickets in the end and batted out 50 overs, it would have been a close game."
