Cape Town - It's the weekend!

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

1. Proteas v India, 1st T20

After a bitterly disappointing ODI series thrashing, the Proteas now face India in the first of three T20Is.

All-rounder JP Duminy will take over the helm, as an inexperienced Proteas attack take on a T20-specalist India squad.

First ball will be bowled at 14:00 with the women's 3rd T20I starting at 10:00.
