The T20 World Cup is serving up a feast of cricket as day seven of the Super 12 brings us the second of two mouthwatering clashes. It’s a big one – Australia vs England. With South Africa now level on points with both sides after beating Sri Lanka in the earlier game, the auld enemies from either side of the globe will want to see themselves on top by the close of play. Make sure you know how to watch a T20 World Cup live stream, for Australia vs England, from anywhere in the world.
The competition formerly known as the ICC World Twenty20 was due to take place in Australia last year but was mothballed due to covid-19. A year later, and it’s in full swing having relocated to Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
The 16 teams have now been whittled down to just 12, with qualifiers Scotland and Bangladesh joining the likes of 2010 winners England, 2007 victors India and defending champions the West Indies in the race for the title.
England are one of the favourites but will find it tough without Ben Stokes (on an indefinite break from cricket), Sam Curran (back injury) and Jofra Archer. Can Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali step up to the plate and overpower the likes of India?
Five years ago in Dubai, England had all but secured the crown only for West Indies cricketer Carlos Brathwaite to hit four sixes and snatch a famous victory. The Windies aren’t quite at their best, but they’re heavy hitters and have talents such as Roston Chase.
And let’s not forget New Zealand. The Black Caps have a team packed with T20 legends, including Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, Trent Boult and Tim Southee. Could the 2021 T20 World Cup turn out to the golden generation’s final bow?
The action takes place across the Dubai International Stadium, Sharjah Stadium, Oman Cricket Academy Ground and Sheikh Zayed Cricket Ground. Read on below to find out how you can watch a T20 World Cup live stream from where you are in the world.
T20 World Cup free live stream in Australia
Fox Sports has the rights to air the T20 World Cup 2021. Cord-cutters can catch every match live and on-demand through Kayo Sports. A Kayo subscription costs just AU$25 per month for access on two devices. New users get a 14-day free trial, so you can watch the majority of the T20 World Cup for free.
Watch a T20 World Cup live stream abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant T20 World Cup cricket rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple:
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the T20 World Cup, you may wish to choose ‘Australia’ for Kayo Sports.
3. Then head over to Kayo Sports on your browser or device and enjoy the cricket using Kayo’s 14-day free trial.
