Must watch on TV: The cricket carnival goes on

Yet another sports filled weekend awaits us, with cricket being the main attraction this week. Football comes in a close second, as Liverpool take on Manchester United.

Finalists from the 2007 edition, Sri Lanka and Australia, start things off for the weekend on Saturday. The game begins at 14:30 hours, Live on STAR Cricket.
 
Sunday features two big games. 
 
First, entertainers England take on the ever consistent South Africa at Chennai. This game begins at 09:30 hours and will be telecast Live on ESPN. 
 
Then, Kevin o Brien and the rest of the Irish team will be looking to cause one more upset when they take on MS Dhoni's India. Bengaluru has already witnessed two high octane games and  fans will be hoping for the same. The game begins at 14:30 hours, on STAR Cricket and STAR Sports.
 
In a weekend of big games, football will not be left out.
 
On Sunday, league leaders Manchester United take on arch rivals Liverpool at Anfield. All the news pre-kick off for this game surrounds Andy Carroll and whether he'll make his debut for Liverpool after his 35 million pound transfer to Anfield. With Vidic, Ferdinand and Evans all out due to injury or suspension, whoever Liverpool put out in attack will fancy scoring against United.
