The biggest event in the calendar of cricket fans around the globe is almost here, with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 bowling its first ball on May 30th, running all the way through to the finals in mid-July. With ten countries sending their best one-day teams to compete for one of the game’s most cherished trophies, it’s going to be a month and a half of the best cricket has to offer.

A treasure trove of cricket content for those who like to dive deep into what makes the game tick, this constantly growing collection lets you stream a wide range of content. There are interviews (such as Adam Gilchrist interviewing the Aussie team, or sitting down with superstar Indian cricketer Virat Kohli), there are docos about cricket from Australia and around the world, and much more. As the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 progresses, you can expect to see more cricket specials added to the list.
Full Length Docos
If you’re looking for some cricket viewing with a bit more to chew on, Kayo Sports has some brilliant documentaries on offer, taking you deep inside some of the most interesting stories in the game. A must-see is Downfall, which looks at the infamous ball-tampering scandal and what it has meant for those involved, with Warne, Gilchrist and Border giving their insights. Or Being Kevin Pietersen, one of the more popular full length sport docos about the former England player and his rocky journey in the game. The epic two-part 2 Nations, 1 Obsession looks at the long-standing friendly rivalry between the Australian and Indian teams, the origin of IPL cricket and more.
Official Cricket Films
Put together at the end of a competition and drawing from a mountain of footage from broadcasts and dozens of other sources, the official films of sporting events tend to be must-see experiences that capture the dynamic and excitement of the whole contest in a compact hour-long experience. Kayo Sports has some of these already available – including a terrific overview of the 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup and the 2018 ICC Women’s World Twenty20. More will be on the way, with the 2019 World Cup an obvious contender.
It’s one of the smartest things to happen to sports television since, well, television. Kayo Sports is well aware that many people lead lives that don’t always allow time to sit back and take in the full length of a one-day game, let alone a multi-day test match. That’s where Kayo Minis come in – they’re expertly curated and edited versions of games, condensed down to a more manageable length (for example, an entire one-day match can be viewed as an 18-minute Kayo Mini). More than just a highlights reel, Minis replays let you experience the game without the hefty time investment. They’re going to be crucial throughout the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019!
