International cricket | T20 Big Bash | Domestic cricket

Until 2017-18, all home matches were broadcast on Channel Nine. From 2018-19, a new TV deal will see cricket belong on Foxtel and Channel Seven.

The home summer will be divided between the two networks, with all Test cricket and most of the Big Bash League to be simulcast.

Fox Sports have exclusive coverage of ODI and T20I cricket, while they will also broadcast some of the domestic one-day competition and the final of the Sheffield Shield.

For away games, Fox Sports normally deal with away boards to secure the rights to matches, such as the recent tour to the UAE where Australia took on Pakistan.

As far as live streaming goes, your best option will be to use Kayo, a new sport streaming service. They’ll have every match of the upcoming series against India, as well as the Big Bash League, live.

Australia’s 2019 Cricket World Cup fixtures

The 2019 World Cup will be played from May 20 to June 15, 2019 in England. You can check out the full list of fixtures for the tournament here.

Due to pre-existing broadcast agreements, it will be shown on Channel 9 and Fox Sports.

Big Bash

The Big Bash League, under the new TV deal, will become a full home-and-away fixture, with 59 matches set to be played. 43 of those will be simulcast on Seven and Fox, while the remaining 16 matches are exclusive to Foxtel.

The full fixtures for the competition have now been announced.


Domestic cricket

In a change under the new deal, the Sheffield Shield final and 13 JLT one-day will be broadcast exclusively on Fox Sports.

The remaining matches won’t be shown on free-to-air or pay TV. Instead, you’ll have to head to to watch the JLT Cup (the domestic one-day cup formerly known as the Matador Cup) and the Sheffield Shield.

The live streams are available to viewers for free, but you will need to get yourself a Cricket ID to gain access to the coverage.
