Cape Town - South African opening batsman Graeme Smith returned to Cape Town on Saturday even though two games remain in the One Day International (ODI) series against India, Cricket SA (CSA) announced.

"Smith has returned to Cape Town to focus on his Test match preparation ahead of the two-match Test series against India starting in Johannesburg on December 18," CSA said in a statement.

Vernon Philander had recovered from a shoulder blade strain and was available for selection for the second ODI in Durban on Sunday, but Imran Tahir remained in doubt for the match.
