Got any plans this week? Get ready to be flexible if so, because there’s a host of unmissable sporting action heading to your tellybox…
From Friday 16 November on BT Sport
It’s all kicking off down under, with Australia’s T20 side flexing their muscles against not one, but two of cricket’s roughest and toughest customers – South Africa and then India just a few days later!
And with more rugby, UFC and T20 showdowns than you can shake your remote at, there’s no shortage of meaty rucks, jaw-dropping knockouts and shattered stumps on BT Sport this week.
Read on below to see what’s in store…
Gallagher Premiership Rugby: Gloucester v Leicester
Friday 16 November, 7pm, BT Sport 1/HD (CH 531/527)
With both teams inconsistent so far this season, this is a true 50-50. As such, it’s likely to be an all-out slugfest. The two sides are closely matched and, as the teams at the top of the table begin to open a gap to those further down, neither will want to slip further behind with a lucrative Champions Cup place hanging in the balance.
T20 Cricket: Australia v South Africa
Saturday 17 November, 8am, BT Sport 1/HD (CH 531/527)
Fresh from their hard-fought three-match ODI series, two of cricket’s fiercest rivals once again lock horns in a cracking T20 match-up at Queensland’s Carrara Stadium. After slipping down the ICC rankings in recent years, the South Africans could claim an impressive scalp should they overcome Australia in front of what will no doubt be a fiercely partisan crowd.
Gallagher Premiership Rugby: Bristol Bears v Exeter Chiefs
Sunday 18 November, 2.30pm, BT Sport 1/HD (CH 531/527)
Incredible as a team of rugby-playing bears would be, the prospect of watching Bristol’s newly promoted and highly ambitious squad do battle with the 2016/17 Premiership champions is possibly even more enticing. And with Bristol having spent big in the summer, the pressure is on to climb up the table and challenge the sides above them.
UFC Fight Night 140
Sunday 18 November, 3am, BT Sport 2/HD (CH 532/528)
Struggling to stay awake in the early hours of Sunday morning? Well, luckily for you, there’s a night of scintillating UFC clashes on the cards, featuring fights in multiple weight classes. And in the light heavyweight contest between Johnny Walker and Khalil Rountree, there’s the chance to see some up-and-coming contenders in action.
T20 Cricket: Australia v India
Wednesday 21 November, 7.30am, BT Sport 1/HD (CH 531/527)
After their battle with South Africa at the weekend, those big-hitting Aussies host India, one of the world’s best cricketing teams. The three-match T20 series is a warm-up for the four Tests between the two sides in December and January – and with national pride for these cricket-mad countries at stake, both teams will be looking to lay down a marker. Don’t be surprised to see an intense and hotly contested affair…
