Tahir expected to be fit

Mohali - South Africa says key bowlers Dale Steyn and Imran Tahir are expected to be fully fit and available for selection for its second game at the World Cup, against Netherlands in Group B on Thursday.

South Africa media manager Lerato Malekutu says the pair were "coming along well" after worries over the weekend.

Fast bowler Steyn bruised his right side in a collision with a team mate in a pre-training football match while legspinner Tahir was diagnosed with a respiratory infection.

Malekutu says both had a light training session on Tuesday, and the medical team was just being "overcautious."

Batsman JP Duminy took part in a full net session after recovering from some tightness in his lower back following South Africa's opening seven-wicket win over West Indies.

    Glad he is ok, as he will be key in this world cup. After much debate I came to the conclusion that if we were to win the world cup the following guys will have to perform and perform well. Smith, Amla, AB, Tahir, Steyn

    I agree. I would add one name to that list - Kallis.. Hopefully he can perform well with bat and ball.. His medium pace swing will be very effective if he can find his old rhythm.
