<p>India plays South Africa in the second and final Test on Wednesday at the Newlands in Cape Town, hoping to tie the series. Following a devastating loss by an innings and 32 runs in the first game of the series, the visitors want to level the score with South Africa and maintain their relevance in the World Championship standings.</p>

<p>With 14 points (38.89 PCT), India is now ranked sixth in the points table; a loss will further hurt their standing. India’s bowling lineup is probably going to see a lot of changes after their humiliation in Centurion. Veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is probably going to be benched, but Ravindra Jadeja is anticipated to make a comeback.</p>
<p>According to Accuweather, there will probably be clear skies all day. The sun is predicted to be out and there is very little risk of rain. The intended range for the temperature is 28 to 30 degrees Celsius.</p>
<p>In actuality, Cape Town expects no rain throughout the first two days. With minimal assistance from spinners on either side, the surface at the Newlands will be a batting haven.</p>
<p>Recalling the first Test match, South Africa dominated it handily. With his five wicket haul, Rabada put India under pressure. KL Rahul scored a counterattacking century of 101, but Elgar’s amazing 185 quickly eclipsed it.</p>
<p>India only scored 131 in the second innings, despite Virat Kohli hitting a tough 76. By an innings and thirty-two runs, the hosts prevailed in the game.</p>
<p>India skipper Rohit Sharma acknowledged that his bowling attack now has minimal “inexperience” ahead of the second Test.</p>
<p>In order for them to succeed and finish the task, he said, they must have their trust.</p>
<p>“Having said that, I still believe that sometimes we have a little bit of inexperience when it comes to bowling, and every team may experience that. You have to have some confidence and trust in them at such moments. We’re all anxious when we play our first game, as I said at the last post-match news conference [in Centurion] about Prasidh [Krishna]. Although I still believe that he has a fair chance of succeeding at this level and particularly in this format, it is reasonable. Thus, all that has to be done is to have confidence and trust in each other and to get the work done,” Rohit said.</p>
