Cape Town - It's the weekend!

But the sporting world never sleeps, so hang on tight and be sure to watch these FIVE events (in no particular order)!

1. ENGAND V PROTEAS, 2ND TEST

The Proteas will want to set something straight in the second Test against England at Trent Bridge - they're still a side to be reckoned with.

Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis is back and although we're without speedster Kagiso Rabada, the Proteas will look to square the series in Nottingham after losing the first Test at Lord's.

Play starts at 12:00 SA time with the Proteas hopefully on top!
