Durban - South Africa have enough strength in depth to cope without injury doubt Morné Morkel in the second Test against India, Proteas captain Graeme Smith said on Tuesday.

Morkel sustained an ankle injury during the game, which prevented him from bowling in the second innings and was a doubtful starter for Thursday, with Rory Kleinveldt or Kyle Abbott on stand-by to replace him.

"I feel we're mentally ready and today's training session is an important part of that. Hopefully it will be really good, with high intensity and we'll be ready for Boxing Day."
