The month of January is full of action-packed sports. With India playing at home against Sri Lanka, there are cricket matches going around in Pakistan as well as Australia. However, there is a T20 league also going on Down Under.


January 5 (Thursday) will see Men in Blue lock horns with Sri Lanka in Pune in the second T20I of the series. While there is Test cricket also going on in Australia as well as Pakistan. As the Day 1 of 3rd Test between Australia and South Africa stopped due to rain and bad light, hope the Day 2 does not go the same way.


The Men in Green also are close to taking a lead in the ongoing second Test against New Zealand in Karachi. On the other hand, in the Big Bash League only fixture scheduled for Thursday, Adelaide Strikers will take on Hobart Hurricanes in Melbourne.


Talking about football, there are three Premier League fixtures lined-up for the day. In the first Southampton will lock horns with Nottingham Forest, followed by a game between Leeds United and West Ham and Aston Villa and Wolves later in the day. However, there are twelve matches set to be played in NBA regular season on Thursday (January 5).
