South Africa captain Graeme Smith is on course to recover from ankle surgery in time for his side's summer tour of England.

The 31-year-old went under the knife to correct the problem three weeks ago.

"The tour to England is an important one for the Proteas, and I'm confident that I will be 100% fit and able to lead the team by then," he said.

South Africa take on England in their first Test at the Oval on Thursday, July 19.
