Team India is preparing hard for the second Test at Centurion, after losing the first Test at Cape Town.

The pitch at Centurion is supposed to be full of bounce and seam thanks to the high altitude setting of the SuperSport Park. India might be tempted to play with four genuine fast bowlers in the second Test, after the exploits of the Indian seam attack at Cape Town.

However, it seems like even the spinners are trying to prove their worth on fast pitches, as R Ashwin was seen bowling seam up in the net sessions. Before this, Ashwin was seen mastering the art of leg spin, as he prepared for the Proteas tour.

BCCI put up a video of him bowling pace at batsmen during net sessions. Ashwin might be trying to become more useful to Virat Kohli, as he wasn't used much in the first Test. Ashwin bowling pace might get him some more overs and given that Ashwin strives to be a complete bowler, he may very well add that extra element to his bowling.

The second Test between South Africa and India begins on Saturday.

Here is the video of Ashwin trying his hands at pace bowling:
