Johannesburg - Playing successive series against Pakistan feels like déjà vu for the Proteas Hashim Amla said in Pretoria on Friday.

South Africa ran out 4-1 victors in the United Arab Emirates earlier this month, but had already lost the home one-day international series 2-0 with the third and final match in Centurion on Saturday.

“There was a lot disappointment in the team, but you have to move on.

"The games have been so tight, but we just have to take the lessons from the games.

“Without Dale it's a loss as he's been outstanding and he'll be missed, but it will give the guys on the fringes a great opportunity.

Henry Davids would likely come in at number three in the batting lineup, a role he is slightly unfamiliar with as he opened for the Titans in the domestic game.

“I think he'll be very happy at his home ground. He's very excited and we hope that he just kind of kicks on.
