The Proteas won the two-match series against sRi Lanka one-nil, drawing the second Test in exciting circumstances to record a rare series win in the island nation.

As such, players like Dane Piedt and Stiaan van Zyl, who did not make their debuts in Sri Lanka, could get a chance in Zim.

CSA selection convener Andrew Hudson said: "The Proteas have earned a vote of confidence. We will be naming the ODI squad for the three-match series against Zimbabwe next week and will give consideration to resting a couple of players.

"We will, however, be sending our full-strength ODI squad for the following triangular series against Zimbabwe and Australia."

Test squad: Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, Kyle Abbott, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Dean Elgar, Imran Tahir, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Alviro Petersen, Vernon Philander, Dane Piedt, Dale Steyn, Stiaan van Zyl.
