The Sheffield Shield final is Australia’s premier domestic first-class cricket match, with the 2017-18 decider seeing Queensland host Tasmania at Allan Border Field. This is The Roar‘s guide to live streaming the match online.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 11am (AEDT) – 10am (local) – today.
Unlike the rest of the Sheffield Shield season, where matches were four days in length, the final will last for five days in an attempt to ensure a result. In the past, minor premiers have often played for the draw, even over five days, due to them being able to win the competition with that result.
Unlike other matches broadcast by TV networks, you will not need the subscription live pass to watch the action, with all five days of the match being live streamed for free. To access the stream, you will need to sign up for a Cricket Australia ID.
