Cape Town Weather Forecast

Cape Town: Like at Johannesburg, there are predictions of rain playing spoilsport at the Newlands in Cape Town during the third and final Test between India and South Africa. With the series locked at 1-1, and the final Test promising to be a humdinger – fans would hope the rain stays away.

The humidity is likely to remain high as well. It would be around the 70 per cent-mark. At Johannesburg as well, there were predictions of rain – but there was play and eventually – a result.

The hosts would start favourites and with new-found energy after their comprehensive win at the Wanderers. India would hope that their pace-battery fires in unison. At Wanderers, the pacers failed to pick up 20 wickets, thanks to captain Dean Elgar’s gritty knock.

For India, regular skipper Virat Kohli would be back and that would boost the morale after the loss. India would also realise that there is history at stake. India has never won a Test series on South African soil and the side realises this is their best chance.
