Jaipur:Key West Indies batsman and vice-captain Ramnaresh Sarwan has recovered from viral infection and will play against Bangladesh in the Champions Trophy qualifying match at Sawai Man Singh stadium here tomorrow.

''Sarwan was suffering from viral infection but had recovered. He took part in the net session today,'' team manager Tony Howard said at the pre-match press conference today.

He said the status of Marlon Samuels and Dwayne Smith, who were also down with viral fever, will be known tomorrow morning.

''No one has been ruled out of selection for the playing eleven tomorrow,'' Howard added.

Meanwhile, captain Brian Lara said the side would not take any chances and they would play the best team possible.

''We are not taking Bangladesh lightly. They had sprung some surprises in the past by beating India and Australia and there is no room for complacency as it is a qualifying tournament,'' Lara said when asked whether he would try to experiment with some new faces.

''Playing good cricket is important than looking at whom you play with.'' Answering another question on the enormous form of batmen Chris Gayle, he said, ''Gayle is an important cog in the wheel of West Indies cricket. He is a match winner and integral part of West Indies Cricket.''
