As they prepare for the second Test in Cape Town, team India is doing everything in their power to draw the Test series in South Africa.
The Indian Cricket Team came off to a dismal start in the test series against South Africa. While the dream to defeat the Proteas in a test series remains elusive, the team is leaving no stone unturned to show up and power through the second and final test match of the series. The Rohit Sharma-led Team India faltered in the first match, and they have returned to train themselves to make the sweep in the second match.

Team India will be determined to make a comeback in the second test match against South Africa, and they are taking up intense training for the same. The BCCI shared a video on X (Formerly Twitter) which showed the Indian Cricket Team training and breaking a sweat ahead of their test match against the Proteas. The clip featured Ravindra Jadeja back in action, as the star all-rounder missed the first match due to upper back spasms. Jadeja may replace Ashwin in the second test match.
Head Coach Rahul Dravid was also seen interacting with Yashasvi Jaiswal and debutant Prasidh Krishna after they put up a mediocre showcase against the Proteas. Bowling coach Paras Mhambrey also put Prasidh in action at the nets.
Cricket is a sport fraught with uncertainty, and the Men in Blue are out for atonement. While their ODI World Cup campaign ended in disappointment, the Team will have a new objective in the T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and the United States.
