T20 World Cup, El Clasico, F1, MotoGP: The Super Sunday is here again!

Th

Bengaluru, October 19: Buck up guys! Yet another Super Sunday is coming. Get ready with your pakora platters and gharam chai!

Sports fans and aficionados will be spoilt for choice on Sunday (October 24) as it is literally going to be veritable feast which you all of you can catch up from the comforts of your couch in your living room!

The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 clash between India and Pakistan which begins at 7.30 pm IST headlines the Sunday's action which runs late into midnight.

The high-voltage clash between Virat Kohli-led India and Babar Azam captained Pakistan at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium will literally set the tone and tenor for an action-filled day.

Kohli and Co are one of the firm favourites to win the T20 global title this time and they will be looking to start their campaign on a winning note against Pakistan to whom they have never lost in ICC World Cups in any format.

On the other hand, Azam and his band will be hoping to break the jinx and with the match being held in Middle East, which is more or less Pakistan's second home, one can expect a cracker of a contest as sparks will fly!

Just as an appetizer before the main course, the FIM MotoGP World Cup Championship resumes after a small break at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli with the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix which will start at 5.30pm IST.

It's gonna be a big weekend in MotoGP circles for two big reasons -- First, Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) could lift the crown and become the first French premier class world champion, and second, it's the final dance on home turf for Valentino Rossi (Petronas Yamaha SRT) as the icon prepares to hang up his racing leathers at the end of the season. That does guarantee one thing already, however: it's going to be another weekend that lives long in the memory. Make sure you don't miss a minute as MotoGP returns to Misano, with the lights out for Quartararo's first match point and the Doctor's last dance.

And as the cricket match progresses, the biggest match of the calendar in Spanish League football - the El Clasico featuring arch-rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid- will start.

The match begins at 7.45pm IST at Barcelona's home ground of Camp Nou and this will be the first El Clasico in the post Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo era which literally robs some off the sheen.

Battle of Reds!

Then at 9pm IST, another titanic clash takes place at Old Trafford in the English Premier League as Manchester United hosts Liverpool in a clash of the 'reds'. Both the title contenders will be keen to re-assert their supremacy as generally Premier League picks up intensity during the October-November months.

The same can be said of the Italian Serie A where table toppers Napoli take on title contenders AS Roma at 9.30 followed by the big game between defending champions Inter Milan and past masters Juventus which kicks off at 12.30 am IST (Monday, October 25), the same time when Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain locks horns with title rivals Marseille.

The action concludes with the US Formula 1 Race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, which also starts at 12.30 am IST.

An exciting tussle is going on between Lewis Hamilton and Max Versteppen for top honours, especially after the British driver was left frustrated by Mercedes' decision to pit late during the Turkish Grand Prix, which helped the Dutchman take over the F1 championship lead in Istanbul. Hence the race in US will let us know as to which way the title is heading.
