Dhoni brushes off fatigue factor ahead of SA T20

March 28, 2012 18:10 IST

Their schedule may be chock-a-block but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni does not believe fatigue will be a factor for Indian players who are to play South Africa in a one-off T20 match on Friday followed by the seven-week long Indian Premier League.

"All happy. I don't think fatigue will be a real factor. We all enjoy playing the IPL...that's one format where you are not representing your country and the span of the tournament is slightly longer so you play quite a few games.

"It's a different exposure. I always felt the platform was good for youngsters because they get to play with some of the best international cricketers. It helps you get a bit fitter also," Dhoni said on his arrival in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

Dhoni also lauded South Africa for their hospitality and the ability to make visiting teams feel comfortable.
