As in the 2019 World Cup, ten teams played a full round-robin, with 45 games played before two semi-finals and a final to crown the champions.

Time zones didn’t make for great reading for Australian audiences, with day matches scheduled to begin at 4pm (AEDT), while day-night matches get underway at 7:30pm (AEDT). A majority of Australia’s matches were in the later timeslot.

How to live stream the Cricket World Cup online in 2023

To stream the 2023 Cricket World Cup online, you’ll first need to understand where it will be broadcast on TV, as this dictates which stations are allowed to use their digital platforms to show matches.

As with the 2019 tournament, Channel Nine will broadcast Australian matches, as well as the tournament opener, two semi-finals, and the final.


Every match, including those on Nine, will be shown on Fox Sports, through their 24/7 cricket channel, known as Fox Cricket.

That being said, the only way to stream every match of the tournament online will be to use the Fox Sports coverage.

The best method to do that is through Kayo Sports, which is a service which has the rights to all of Foxtel’s sports channels, as well as selected other events. It’ll set you back at least $25 per month.

The other ways to stream the coverage of every match on Fox Cricket are through the Foxtel App or Foxtel Now, which are Foxtel’s dedicated streaming services.

The Foxtel app is the better service to use if you already have a subscription to TV with the sports package, while Now is the way to go if you’re only looking to stream Foxtel channels. Again, you’ll need a package with the sports channels.

To watch Australian games and the final part of the tournament for free, you’ll be able to tune in through 9Now, which is the Channel Nine streaming service. You will need to sign up for this with a valid email address.

The Roar will also cover the tournament, with live scores, blogs, highlights and analysis.
