Must watch on TV: Lots of ODI cricket action

For Tennis fans there’s the Australian Open.

Must watch on TV:  Lots of ODI cricket action

Yet again its cricket on TV that will determine your plans for the weekend.
A stunning knock on Tuesday by Yusuf Pathan gave India a 2-1 lead against the Proteas. A repeat performance at Port Elizabeth later today could hand India an unassailable 3-1 lead.  The fourth ODI starts at 6:00 pm later today.

If South Africa win tonight, then all eyes will be on the fifth ODI at the Centurion on Sunday. This will be the last game the two teams play before the World Cup and will raise the curtains on a tour in which both the teams have shown reasons why they should be considered as major contenders for the World Cup. The fifth ODI will begin at 1:30 pm. Both the games are Live on ESPN.

Fresh from a one nil win over New Zealand in the Test series, Pakistan will look to build on that win by beating the Kiwis in the ODI arena too. The first ODI between the two teams starts on Saturday at 6:30 am, Live on Neo Cricket.

There’s more cricket to come.

World Champions Australia take on England in the third ODI at Sydney. The game begins at 8:50 am and will be Live on STAR Cricket.

Along with cricket, Australia are also hosting the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open. Catch days six and seven of the Open Live on STAR Sports on Saturday and Sunday from 5:30 am onwards.

Further, there’s a full round of Barclays Premier League action.

Liverpool who’ve been linked with a move for Uruguayan international, Luis Suarez all week will start things off without the striker with a trip to the Molineux Stadium to play Wolverampton Rovers on Saturday. The game kicks off at 6:15 pm, Live on ESPN.

Following this, the action shifts to Old Trafford where the current league leaders, Manchester United take on Birmingham City at 8:25 pm, Live on ESPN. On STAR Sports at the same time, the in-form Arsenal take on Wigan Athletic.
