Colombo - Spin is set to play a key role in the Proteas' strategy in the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka starting in Colombo on Saturday.
"We are looking to go with two frontline spinners and with JP as another option, and I truly believe that we have the potential to win games from a spin bowling department.
South Africa and Sri Lanka have played in 14 matches on the sub-continent, with Sri Lanka holding a firm advantage with 10 wins.
"We know it's going to be a challenging series but we are definitely up for it.
"I truly believe we have the potential to upset Sri Lanka in their home conditions.
"We have all the fire power, and I'm excited by the hunger for success that I sense from the players." Morne Morkel, who has been suffering from a thigh injury, showed signs of recovery during training on Friday.
However, a decision on his availability for selection will only be made late on Saturday, before the toss.
