Christmas cricket live on your screens
Ordinarily, the only cricket on Christmas Day is played on the beach, but in a rare instance a Twenty20 international will take place on December 25 between fierce rivals India and Pakistan.
The match will be broadcast live on SuperSport 2 and SSHD2, starting at 2:45pm (CAT, SA, GMT+2).
The event will signal a resumption of bilateral cricket ties, which were suspended after the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
The last series between the two sides was Pakistan’s tour of India in 2007 although Pakistan travelled to India to play the World Cup semifinal in Mohali last year.
