Must watch on TV: IPL Auctions,  India – SA T20

Live IPL action returns this weekend, with the auctions taking centre stage. Only 12 players have an assured berth in a team for the fourth season of the IPL, so the auctions are sure to provide some drama. Sourav Ganguly, David Warner, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, Graeme Swann, Adam Gilchrist, Ajit Agarkar, Yusuf Pathan, Kevin Pietersen, Robin Uthappa and Zaheer Khan are just few of the names that are going to attract loads of interest. The coverage of the auction starts at 10:00 am on Saturday and Sunday, and will be telecast Live on Set Max.

The following teams have retained players:

Mumbai Indians: Sachin Tendulkar, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Harbhajan Singh

Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay, Albie Morkel

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli

Rajasthan Royals: Shane Warne and Shane Watson

Delhi Daredevils: Virender Sehwag

Further, for those who prefer watching the cricketers in action, there’s the only T20 between the top two Test teams, India and South Africa to look forward to on Sunday evening. The game begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday evening. Tune into TEN Cricket to watch all the action.
For football lovers, there’s the third round of the FA Cup.

The action starts with Leeds United travelling to North London to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. The game starts at 6:15 on Saturday, and although it looks like a walk in the park for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger and his boys will have to be wary of the fact that Leeds had knocked out Manchester United at the same stage last year.

On Sunday, in the big game of the tie, two of the most successful English clubs, Manchester United and Liverpool go head to head  against each other.  This one starts at 7:00 pm on Sunday.
Sony PIX will telecast both the games.

For Asian football fans, there’s the AFC Asian Cup 2011 that gets underway later today.
Hosts Qatar get the tournament rolling when they take on Uzbekistan at 9:30 pm on STAR Sports.
On Saturday, at 6:30 pm, Kuwait take on China.
