Albie willing to play the semi's

He got his knee scanned and it revealed that he has tendinitis. Which is basicly inflammation of a tendon in his knee. Albie says that the day off made a huge difference and that he is willing to play in the semi-final against the Challengers. He also said that he was in a lot of pain and that it became almost unbearable. At the end of the last 3 games he had played he struggled walking off the field.

I wonder what Mickey Arthur has got to say about this. Is it really worth it? Shouldn't he rest some more? We expect him to be in top shape for the World Cup. Michael Hussy seems to be available. Could this be the reason why Albie wants to play the semi?

Here's an interview with Albie by cricinfo.
