WEEK AHEAD: A Michelin-Starred feast of a week with strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, Pimm’s at the cricket, and ice creams at the Irish Open. Oh, and not forgetting ENGLAND v GERMANY in the Euros !
The week gets underway with day 1 of Wimbledon which features the highly anticipated return of Andy Murray. As always it’s sure to get the country going and all the action will be live on the BBC daily.
You will be able to see the Tour de France every day on ITV too as the race unfolds throughout the week. Later in the day there are two games from the Euros last 16 with Croatia taking on Spain and Switzerland, who look to have it all to do, against France. Both games can be seen on ITV. Kent and Somerset round off the day’s action with a T20 fixture from the Blast.
England begin their ODI series against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, while later on there’s more white-ball action as West Indies are in action against South Africa at 18:45. By that point, of course, we may know whether England are still in contention for the European Championship or whether Germany have once again got the better of the Three Lions. Sweden and Ukraine is the second of the last 16 fixtures on the day.
The action continues on the grass courts in south west London.
Day 1 of the Irish Open which is never one to be missed, where, as ever, the drama can be seen on Sky Sports for all four days until its culmination on Sunday. In the afternoon there is a day/night ODI between England and Sri Lanka, a T20 from the Caribbean, before another treat for golf fans as the Rocket Mortgage Classic also begins.
FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY
The weekend could be make or break for England fans, there could either be national jubilation as Gareth Southgate’s men have made it to the quarter finals or a sombre spirit all around at what might have been. The four quarter finals are set to be split between Friday and Saturday with games at 17:00 and 20:00. The non-stop week is rounded off with a hectic Sunday where we have the final round from the Irish Open and Rocket Mortgage Classic, alongside the third ODI between England and Sri Lanka, and finally the Austrian Grand Prix.
The action comes thick and fast this week and it doesn’t matter your sporting preference, you’ll find it in this week.
