The Indian management have decided to play it safe and have rested Munaf Patel, the fast bowler, for tomorrow's one-day international at Cape Town. Munaf did not take part in a practice session yesterday owing to a sore left ankle, and his absence brings Anil Kumble and Sreesanth into the equation.

Rahul Dravid confirmed that Munaf was not fit enough to take the field, and hoped that Virender Sehwag, who missed out at Durban with a finger injury, would be fit for tomorrow's match. "We are hopeful that Sehwag would be alright," he said. "But you can never say how a player pulls up on the morning of the match particularly after a practice session."
