According to weather forecast website AccuWeather, the weather is expected to be very warm on all five days. While the sunshine is expected to be hazy for the first three days of the test, the remaining two days can witness plenty of sunshine.

The hosts bounced back with a triumph in the second game, recording a 317-run win. Both matches took place at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
