The Cricket World Cup has been elusive for England and, come July 14, Eoin Morgan and his team will be hoping to create history by winning their first-ever World Cup. 

Meanwhile, on the same day, Novak Djokovic will be gunning for a 16th Grand Slam title if he makes it to the final of Wimbledon.

Also on the same day, Lewis Hamilton will be hoping to continue his current red-hot form in the ongoing Grand Prix and vroom to a win at Silverstone.

While Sunday, July 14, is about creating history for these athletes, for the people of Great Britain, it is an opportunity to experience some of the best sporting action in the world. 

England celebrate the run out of Dwaine Pretorius of South Africa during the Group Stage match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and South Africa at The Oval on May 30, 2019 in London, England.

On the cricket front, the country will already be rewarded with Sky making the Cricket World Cup final available on free-to-air television in the UK if England qualify. 


Stephen van Rooyen, Sky UK, and Ireland chief executive said that the network was proud to be the broadcaster for a home Cricket World Cup. "Our aim has always been to celebrate what could be a ‘once in a generation’ moment of a home team in a big final on home soil.  So, if England reaches the final, we will make the match available to everyone so the whole country can be part of a rare and special big sporting moment."

Tennis isn't far behind. Wimbledon's 'Manic Monday' saw two massive upsets in the women's singles with world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty and Karolina Pliskova tumble. And the rest of the week promises some intense action with the men's big three, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, all cruising in the fourth round. If Nadal and Federer win their quarterfinal games, they would meet at Wimbledon for the first time since the epic 2008 final.

Lewis Hamilton is currently leading the Formula 2019 season with 197 points and will be itching to get a win under his belt at the Silverstone circuit this weekend. Sebastian Vettel pipped Hamilton in 2018 and the five-time world champion will look to make amends this time around as he hopes to take the chequered flag in front of his home crowd.

The weekend starts pretty early for the people of Great Britain as the F1 practice sessions get underway on Thursday, while the English cricket team will face off against the formidable Aussies.

Friday will see four tennis heavyweights clash with only two of them making it to the final.

On Sunday, the Cricket World Cup Final will start at 5:30 a.m. ET and 2.30 a.m. PT.


The Wimbledon Final will start at 10:00 a.m. ET

The British F1 Grand Prix is set for lights out at 9.10 a.m. ET on ESPN 2.
