After the 141-run thrashing at Johannesburg, the Indians face another stiff challenge on the green wicket against South Africa in the second One-Day International on Sunday.
Closer to the sea, the humidity levels are going to be high and the overcast conditions might just Benefit the pacers more. Indian batsmen will have a task at hand to negate the bounce and more importantly score runs against the South African pace battery.
India have never beaten South Africa in the four ODIs that they have played at this venue. It will be interesting to see how Dhoni and co take up this new challenge in the must-win encounter.
