Graeme Smith, South Africa's captain, has been cleared to resume training for the ICC World Twenty20 after recovering from the finger injury that forced him to return home mid-way through the ongoing Indian Premier League.

"Cricket South Africa's medical team is satisfied that Graeme has made a complete recovery from his finger injury," South Africa's team manager Mohammad Moosajee said. "He has been given the all clear to resume training in preparation for the ICC World Twenty20 in the Caribbean and the South African tour of the West Indies that follows. Graeme did pick up a slight fever last week but he should be ready to start practising on Wednesday."

Smith broke the middle finger of his right hand while taking a catch in Rajasthan Royals' match against Delhi Daredevils on March 15 and had to return to South Africa. It was the second finger injury Smith had picked up in little more than a month. He had hurt his little finger on the left hand during the build-up to the Eden Gardens Test in February, which kept him out of the one-dayers against India.

South Africa will play World Twenty20 warm-up games against Sri Lanka and England, before beginning their campaign against India in St. Lucia on May 2 and Afghanistan in Barbados on May 5.
