The sporting week ahead (05/09/10)
Sunday 05 September 2010
Pakistan's cricketers return to action (presumably) to do battle with England and their consciences at Twenty20. The rugby season picks up pace with Northampton hosting Leicester while Bath go to Leeds. And expect players to take the aerial route when the Bees (Brentford) take on the Owls (Sheffield Wednesday).
The Women's Amateur World Boxing Championships begin in Barbados. It's hardly York Hall, Bethnal Green is it?
Fabio Capello hopes to find holes in the Swiss defence so they roll over in the European Championship qualifiers. Scotland have a tricky home tie with Liechtenstein and the Irish face mighty Andorra. It's time for the US Ryder Cup wild cards – let's hope they pick no-hopers too. More News of the World match-fixing claims as John Higgins faces a hearing. What's he got in his pocket?
Today it's Ferrari in the dock as they face an investigation into the team orders they gave at the German Grand Prix. Expect them to leave at high speed.
The County Championship shall be settled by today, with Notts tying up the title.
Uh-oh. Some utterly spurious international T20 event begins in South Africa. All above board, no doubt. No home interest there, which is a relief.
Welcome back to the Premier League, where West Ham will be looking to avoid double figures at home to Chelsea. Everton entertain Manchester United while Blackpool could rock their hosts, Newcastle.
