Bangalore: South Africa seam bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe has been cleared to play against Australia in his side's final warm-up game ahead of the World Cup after recovering from a right knee strain.

South Africa said on Monday that Tsotsobe had passed a fitness test ahead of Tuesday's match with the defending world champions.

The Proteas said left-armer Tsotsobe was able to bowl and field without any restrictions after straining his knee in Saturday's eight-wicket win over Zimbabwe in Chennai and has been given "the full go ahead to resume with his World Cup preparations."
