Cape Town, Dec 28 (CRICKETNMORE) - South Africa pacer Morne Morkel on Thursday said he was delighted with the time for rest given ahead of the series against India in the first week of January.

South Africa will host India in the first of three-match Test series here on January 5. Later the Proteas play six One-Day International (ODI) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) with the visitors in the tour which ends here on February 24.
