It might be shaping up as a dead rubber, but top spot is still on the line for Australia as they get set to do battle with South Africa at Old Trafford on the final day of group stage action at the 2019 Cricket World Cup. This is The Roar’s guide to streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The first ball of the game is scheduled for 10:30pm (AEST) on Saturday, July 6, with the Manchester venue to hold the final match of the round robin stage.
Interestingly, should Australia win and finish top of the table, they will remain in Edgbaston and play New Zealand in the first semi-final on Tuesday evening.
However, should the Proteas put some consolation on a horror tournament and pick up a victory, Australia could slump to second place if India beat Sri Lanka in their match at Headingley earlier in the day, leaving Australia to head to Edgbaston and play England.
The match will be available on both Foxtel and free to air TV in Australia.
The best way to watch the Cricket World Cup is through the broadcaster of every single match, Fox Sports, who will have the match on Fox Cricket. This can be found on Channel 501, and their coverage will begin at 9:30pm (AEST), which is an hour before the first ball.
If you want to watch the Fox Sports coverage, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package.
The other way to tune in is on 9Gem, which is available in high definition on Channel 95 and standard definition on Channel 92.
If you’d prefer to stream the match online, then you’ll need to watch through the online coverage of one of the two broadcasters.
Again, Foxtel’s coverage is the way to go, and the best way to stream that is through Kayo Sports, which is available for $25 per month and has the rights to all of Foxtel’s sports channels, as well as other selected events.
The broadcast on Channel 9 will be available to watch online for free with a valid email address through 9Now.
You’ll also be able to follow along with all the action here on The Roar with our live scores, blog and highlights of all the action from 10pm (AEST).
