South African fast bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe has been given the all-clear having recovered from a knee injury that he picked up during his side's ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 warm-up game against Zimbabwe.

The left-armer suffered a knee strain during South Africa's comfortable eight-wicket victory in Chennai and was forced to leave the field.

However, Cricket South Africa (CSA) have now confirmed that he will be fully fit ahead of South Africa's second warm-up match against Australia on 15th February.

South Africa, who make 5/1 third favourites, will then begin their World Cup campaign when they play the West Indies on 24th February in in Delhi.

"Lonwabo (Tsotsobe) suffered a frade one strain, which was not too serious and was able to recover in time for the second warm-up match against Australia tomorrow," South Africa team manager Dr. Mohammad Moserjee said.

"Brandon Jackson, our physiotherapist is happy with his progress and has given him the full go ahead to resume with his World Cup preparations."
