Don’t forget you can stay bang up to speed with every goal, try, knockout and dash for the chequered flag wherever there is 3G, 4G, 5G or WiFi on the brilliant Virgin TV Go app.

Cricket

West Indies cricket team


There’s plenty of cricket to get stuck into this month, with T20 and Test action as the West Indies first take on Australia, and then Pakistan. Having recently played South Africa, the Men In Maroon will feel like they have more to give than they showed in that Test series. And with superstars in the ranks like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, you suspect it is only a matter of time before they come good.

Boxing

Lyndon Arthur boxing


London’s Royal Albert Hall, normally the home of the Proms and classical music, sees a potential classic of a different kind as Lyndon Arthur takes on Davide Faraci with the WBO International Cruiserweight title on the line. It's the undefeated Arthur’s first defence of the belt after beating fellow Brit Anthony Yarde back in December. Faraci, with a 15-0 record and seven knockouts, presents a different type of challenge. But should King Arthur beat the Italian, all eyes will be on whether Joe Smith Jr’s world title is next
