It’s weekend, and that means that the sporting fixture list is packed full of some epic encounters taking place over the next few days, and we got you covered with which clashes you’ve got to keep your eyes on.
Tshwane Open (Sunshine Tour Golf)
Friday, from 10:30 onwards
The second day of the Tshwane Open kicks off on Friday morning at the Pretoria Country Club, with Denmark’s Morten Orum Madsen and England’s David Horsey sharing the lead after Day 1. There are a host of local and international talents competing for the €1,5-million prize, so it should be an entertaining weekend of golf ahead.
India vs Zimbabwe 03:00 (ICC Cricket World Cup)
Zimbabwe have won only 1 out of the 5 World Cup matches they’ve played so far, but that doesn’t reflect how well they have competed.This match against India presents them the opportunity to exit the tournament with their heads held high.
India have been brilliant in the tournament so far, even though they suffered a blip here and there. That said, the men in blue are assured of the top spot in pool B irrespective of how things pan out against the Zimbabweans, so this could be the right opportunity for them to experiment,
Crusaders vs Lions (Super Rugby)
The Crusaders have brought in the heavy artillery for their match against the Lions in Christchurch. The New Zealand side sees Kieran Read, Richie McCaw and Sam Whitelock all in the starting line-up, with Dan Carter making his return in the No. 12 jersey.
The Lions will boast some confidence from their shock win over the Blues last weekend, but they’ll have to up their possession and score some tries if they’re to compete with the 7-time champions.
Stormers vs Chiefs (Super Rugby)
Arguably the most exciting match of the weekend sees the Stormers play host to the two-time Super Rugby winners, the Chiefs, at Newlands on Saturday.
All eyes will be on the midfield battle between the in-form Damian de Allende and always-dangerous Sonny Bill Williams. The stadium should be packed and the hosts will be looking to make it 5 from 5 ahead of their bye-week.
Manchester United vs Tottenham (English Premier League)
With 10 games left, the race for the Barclays Premier League’s top four is entering the home straight and this game could have a significant bearing on the final positions when Spurs take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.
United currently occupy the fourth Champions League spot, with Tottenham three points behind in sixth place, which makes for an intriguing tussle between the two sides.
