Hockey: India vs Pakistan

Out of the title race after a shock 2-3 loss to Malaysia, India face Pakistan on Saturday night in a 5th-8th classification match of the Hockey World League Semi-Final.

Even though India hold an edge over Pakistan having thrashed them 7-1 in the pool stage last Sunday, the tussle between the two nations can be unpredictable. Just like the pool match, emotions will run high on both sides and come tomorrow, Pakistan will be desperate for a revenge.

Women’s Cricket: India vs England

A strong tune-up notwithstanding, India will have their task cut out when they lock horns with title contenders England in the tournament- opener of the ICC Women's World Cup Saturday afternoon.

As far as their recent form is concerned, India comprehensively won their last four ODI series; first whitewashing Sri Lanka and the West Indies at home and then beating South Africa in the finals of qualifier as well as the quadrangular series.

Opponents England though are two-time champions and could be India’s toughest match in the group stage.

Time Yet to be Announced.

Men’s Cricket: India vs West Indies
