What To Watch This Weekend

October 15, 2021

CRICKET

IPL final (Friday, 4pm)

Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Faf du Plessis is the only South African likely to be involved in the final and it’s a big pity that he isn’t in the Proteas’ squad for the T20 World Cup which gets under way on Sunday. Du Plessis, a former national captain, remains one of the most accomplished cricketers around, in all three established formats of the game. The Super Kings have won the IPL three times, while the Knight Riders are two-time winners of the trophy.

T20 World Cup

The action starts on Sunday, with two matches being played. Current champions are West Indies but it’s India and England who are the favourites to lift the trophy this year. The early fixtures are:

(Sun)

Oman vs Papua New Guinea

Bangladesh vs Scotland

(Mon)

Ireland vs Netherlands

Sri Lanka vs Namibia

(Tues)

Scotland vs Papua New Guinea

Oman vs Bangladesh

FOOTBALL

English Premiership

The season resumes after the International break, but it comes with a warning. There will have been plenty of teams affected by the players’ schedules – from a travelling, fatigueness and lack of club preparation perspective – which makes upsets possible. The Brentford vs Chelsea match is an example. The hosts have already beaten Arsenal and drawn with Liverpool at their home, and they have beaten West Ham away. On paper Chelsea should win this, but if they don’t silence the fans early on, it could get awkward.

Elsewhere, Watford face Liverpool in the notorious early Saturday kick-off – and with a new manager in Claudio Ranieri – while Newcastle host Tottenham with their fans bouncing with the news they are about to become the richest club in the world. Newcastle are suddenly going to become one of the toughest teams to get three points from.

(Sat)

Watford vs Liverpool

Southampton vs Leeds

Norwich vs Brighton

Aston Villa vs Wolves

Leicester City vs Man United

Man City vs Burnley

Brentford vs Chelsea

(Sun)

Everton vs West Ham

Newcastle vs Tottenham

(Mon) Arsenal vs Crystal Palace

DStv Premiership

There are four matches in the DStv Premiership this weekend. The one that will get the most attention is the one which sees 12th-placed Kaizer Chiefs take on 13th-placed Chippa United. It’s worth noting that a win for Chiefs will see them rise and share the same number of points (none) with Orlando Pirates and Golden Arrows. But, they’re already 10 points behind pace-setters Sundowns and we’ve only had six matches this season!

(Sat)

3.30pm: Sekhukhune vs Cape Town City 

5pm: SuperSport United vs Baroka 

5.30pm: Kaizer Chiefs vs Chippa United 

(Sun)

3.30pm: Swallows vs Stellenbosch

 

GOLF

The action on both the European Tour and PGA Tours saw eight South Africans teeing it up, although after some indifferent first rounds, that number will be lower than that heading into the Andalucia Masters and the CJ Cup.

RACING

It’s the last day of the British flat season this weekend, while the weekend’s South African action sees meetings at Durbanville and Turffontein on Saturday and Greyville on Sunday.

RUGBY

United Rugby Championship

South Africa’s rugby sides got on the scoreboard in this northern hemisphere-staged franchise tournament with some impressive results last week. However, the two Irish sides, Munster and Ulster, have been blazing a trail and until the South African sides are back at full strength, these two teams must be backed to keep winning. Tonight both the Lions and Stormers are in action. Neither have an easy task, but the Stormers have the softer fixture by taking on the Welsh franchise the Dragons.

(Fri)

Ulster vs Lions

Dragons vs Stormers

(Sat)

Zebre vs Glasgow Warriors

Benetton vs Ospreys

Edinburgh vs Bulls

Leinster vs Scarlets 

Munster vs Connacht

Cardiff Blues vs Sharks
