Indian sports fans have to lot to look forward to on what promises to an action-filled Sunday, as three major sports events involving India are lined up throughout the day.

First up in action will be Kidambi Srikanth, who had knocked out world no. 1 Son Wan-Ho in the semi-finals of the Indonesia Super Series Premier on Saturday. He will face Japan’s Sakai Kazumasa in Sunday’s title clash.

The ICC Champions Trophy final between arch-rivals India and Pakistan will then commence shortly after, with the match set to be eagerly followed by millions of cricket fans across the Indian subcontinent.

The Indian men’s hockey team will be squaring off against their Pakistani counterparts in London in a Hockey World League (HWL) semi-final round match, with the Indian side having already qualified for the quarter-finals of the event.

Kidambi Srikanth and the two Indian teams will all go in as favourites to win the three big events, but it remains to be seen how successful a Sunday it turns out to be for India in sports.
