Calcutta: Star Indian batsman Rahul Dravid, whose participation in the upcoming Test series in South Africa was in doubt because of a shoulder injury, has been declared fit by medical officials.Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Jagmohan Dalmiya made the announcement to reporters here on Thursday after receiving a detailed medical report from the team management."We have got the medical report and Rahul has been cleared for the three Test series," Dalmiya said. "He does not have a rotator cuff injury as was being feared."Dravid, who played in the recent tri-series in South Africa in which Kenya was the third team, was thought to be suffering from a shoulder cartilage injury which turned out to be only a minor one.It was feared that the most dependable batsman of the Indian team would have to return to India even before the Test series started in Bloemfontein on November 3.
