Cape Town - The Proteas will look to bounce back immediately when the second Test against India gets underway in Bangalore on Saturday. 

But a look at the weather forecast suggests there could be a bit of rain around during the match - something the tourists would not welcome given that they are already 1-0 down in the four-match series. 

When the Proteas were on the ropes in the first Test in Mohali, there would been a few supporters back home checking online to see if the weather gods could save their team. But there was only blue - both skywards and on the pitch for the South Africans. 

However, the situation looks slightly different in Bangalore. 

According to weather site, Saturday's opening day will be the pick of the five days, weather-wise. 

But rain is expected on Sunday afternoon and throughout Monday, with a slightly lower chance of showers on Tuesday.  

Wednesday's final day could have light rain in the afternoon, too. 

The temperature is not expected to climb above 30 degrees Celsius at any stage during the Test. 

Play starts at 06:00 SA time on Saturday.
