3. PROTEAS V ENGLAND T20s

Stand-in T20 skipper AB de Villiers will be needing to bounce back after their hiding in the first T20 in Southamtpon.

They now take on a confident English unit at Taunton (Friday, 18:00 SA time) to hopefully level the series.

And whatever happens they'll be looking for a win in the third T20 (Sunday, 15:30 SA time) ahead of the four-Test series against England.

Go boys!

4. NEDBANK CUP FINAL

SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates will meet in the Nedbank Cup final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

For the Tshwane side, the game is a chance to give their coach Stuart Baxter the perfect send-off as he moves on to officially join Bafana Bafana.

Meanwhile, Kjell Jonevret is only four months into the job and landing the trophy could do wonders for the Buccaneers.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 20:15 SA time.
