Australia will confront possibly their easiest game of the Cricket World Cup in London when they clash with a struggling Sri Lanka. This is The Roar’s guide to streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The Australians have won three of their first four matches at the tournament, but could run into fatigue problems here before their schedule gets less repetitive at the back-end of the tournament.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are struggling big time, with just a single win against Afghanistan during their first four matches of the campaign.
For Australian audiences, there will be two ways to watch this match on TV.
The first of those is to tune in through Fox Sports, who will broadcast the match from 7pm (AEST) on their dedicated cricket channel, Fox Cricket, which can be found on Channel 501 through Foxtel.
The only way to watch the Foxtel coverage on TV in Australia though will be to use a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package.
You can also use Channel 9, who will broadcast the match on their back-up station, 9Gem. It can be found on Channel 92, also from 7pm (AEST).
If you’d prefer to stream the match online in Australia, there will be a handful of ways to do so.
The best method is to use Kayo Sports, who have all the rights to Foxtel’s sports channels, plus other selected events from $25 per month.
You can also use Foxtel Now to stream Foxtel channels.
If you already have a TV subscription, then the best bet is to go with the Foxtel App.
The final method is to use Channel 9’s coverage through their dedicated streaming application, 9Now, which is free to use, provided you sign up with a valid email address.
