India's new pace spearhead Ishant Sharma is in doubt for the upcoming home series against South Africa after he was advised two to three weeks' rest to recover from a toe injury.

Outgoing Physio John Gloster has advised Ishant rest for two-three weeks from bowling and running.

"No compromise on this instruction... Strength and focus on core stability, gluteal strength, quadriceps strength and hamstring/hip flexor flexibility," Gloster said in his report to the BCCI.

The Delhi lad, who impressed everyone with his pace and aggression in Australia, is also sufering from inflammation of his forefinger and he has been advised to continue with anti-inflammatory techniques until the problem is resolved.

Yuvraj Singh has already been deemed fit enough but he has also been advised to lay "emphasis on strengthening and stability without high impact activity."

Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh's hamstring is also a cause for concern and will require minimum two weeks' rest from bowling and running post tour, Gloster's report added.
