Besides if you are talking about how Ponting, Johnson etc need rest, the entire Indian contingent has played double the cricket that these guys have in the last 2 months.
Bull SA are overrated in ODI, best Test team sure but not ODI. They lack the bowling.
Their ODI bowling is inexperienced rather than being total crap. I am sure Steyn who has underperformed so far in ODIs will come to the party sooner than later. Ntini is of course past it, but Parnell, Tsotsobe etc are good prospects. Morkel is iffy but still a force to reckon with. And overall, their batting is so good that it can erase a few deficits of it's own bowling.

is better than the South African attack,
Parnell is world class.
Kallis past it
Morkel and co. are dire.
Botha is alright but India's are better.
They were the best when Pollock was still there now they are just a bit behind India. India's batting is too good and at home they would be heavy favorites while away it'd be 50/50
