Get ready for an intense battle at Newlands, Cape Town, where South Africa (SA) and India (IND) lock horns for the 2nd Test match in the India tour of South Africa 2023-2024.  As the series progresses, South Africa holds the upper hand with a commanding lead of 1-0, courtesy of a resounding victory by an innings and 32 runs in the 1st Test match.

In the first innings of the previous encounter, India, after being put to bat by South Africa, faced an early top-order collapse. Despite this, a resilient display by KL Rahul, alongside partnerships from Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer, managed to salvage the innings, culminating in a total of 245 runs. South Africa's Kagiso Rabada and Nandre Burger made crucial breakthroughs, keeping the pressure on the Indian batting lineup. In response, South Africa countered strongly, posting a formidable 408 runs. Dean Elgar led the charge with a remarkable knock, falling short of a double century by a mere 15 runs, well supported by vital contributions from Marco Jansen. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj posed threats, claiming crucial wickets for India.

The second innings witnessed India battling against a significant trail by 163 runs. Despite early dismissals, a partnership between Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli provided some stability, but India faced a massive collapse afterward. Kohli's valiant half-century wasn't enough to withstand South Africa's determined bowling attack, eventually leading to India's downfall, being bowled out for 131 runs. Kagiso Rabada, Nandre Burger, and Marco Jansen once again emerged as pivotal figures, securing vital wickets for South Africa. With South Africa commanding the series, India are determined to bounce back and level the series, setting the stage for an enthralling contest in the 2nd Test match at Newlands.
