Johannesburg: The absence of experienced players in the South African cricket team cost them dearly during the away series against Sri Lanka, which the Proteas lost 1-4, coach Russell Domingo has said.

Domingo said the invaluable experience of Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Graeme Smith was dearly missed.

"We need to manage guys like Dale Steyn and Jacques Kallis. We also need their input in our one-day system. Their unavailability for this tour has shown up through the lack of experience we have had," Domingo said.
