Colombo:

South Africa captain AB de Villiers wants his side's tour of Sri Lanka to be part of a team-building process aiming at the cricket World Cup in two years, and says his young players are learning to perform without the stars.

He said on Tuesday, ahead of five one-day internationals and three Twenty 20s, that his team is still trying to find its feet but getting used to being without players such as Jacques Kallis and Dale Steyn.

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews will miss the first two one-day matches because of a suspension for maintaining a slow-over rate in the final of a tri-series in West Indies also involving India.
