Trinidad - The Proteas' Test squad moved smoothly into five-day mode on the opening day of their two-day practice match against a Trinidad XI at the Sir Frank Worrell Field on Sunday.
The first Test against the West Indies starts at Queen's Park Oval on Thursday.
Trinidad were missing their current international players but they nevertheless included three players with experience at this level in captain Darren Ganga, Lendl Simmons and Dave Mohammed.
Batting first the Proteas compiled 347/4 in 90 overs with Alviro Petersen (65), AB de Villiers (53), JP Duminy (51) and Mark Boucher (51 not out) all recording half-centuries.
De Villiers and Duminy both retired to give other players a chance as did in-form Hashim Amla.
Graeme Smith batted for an hour to show his best form of the tour, as did Duminy, to make 41 in an hour before being run out.
The Proteas are using their full squad of 14 players in this match and will get their bowlers into action on day two.
