How to Watch or Stream South Africa in 2019 Cricket World Cup


South Africa has been an intimidating force on a global scale in all forms of the game over the past decade or so, but the team has been unable to translate that into World Cup success.

Though they have lost some big names in recent years, their squad still boasts plenty of elite talent, a fact which should give them confidence in their ability to finally pass the semi-final stage. But with the likes of India and England standing in their way, will history repeat itself?

Cricket World Cup TV Preview – Can South Africa win its inaugural title?

AB de Villiers, perhaps the greatest limited overs batsman we’ve ever seen, might be gone, but a look at the names in South Africa’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 squad of 15 suggests they’re still more than capable of competing. Their side is littered with talent both young and old, with the likes of Hashim Amla, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis the backbone of a dangerous team.

Testament to that fact, South Africa hasn’t lost an ODI series for over a year, with series wins over Sri Lanka (twice), Australia, Zimbabwe and Pakistan in the past year. Not an elite list of teams with the exception of Australia, granted, but you can only beat the teams in front of you and the number three ranked side in ODI cricket has certainly been doing that.

South Africa will likely be competing for a spot in the final four with Australia, so there will be plenty of interest in how they perform throughout the tournament. Unfortunately, only a handful of their games will be shown on Channel Nine, the official Cricket World Cup free to air network. Alternatively, Kayo Sports has comprehensive coverage of South Africa’s entire World Cup campaign. Each match will be available for streaming live in High Definition, and on-demand for those who want to catch-up after the match has begun. This includes the opening match of the tournament, which will take place on the 30th of May against England at The Oval.

How to Stream Every South Africa Match at the ICC Cricket World Cup

Kayo will be the home to all of the South Africa ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 matches. Each and every ball of their nine group matches will be available for streaming both live and on-demand, and if they finish in the top four you’ll be able to catch their finals matches too.*

Plus, you’ll be treated to a range of on screen features, including SplitView – which enables you to watch numerous sporting events on one screen simultaneously – as well as No Spoilers (hides the scores) and Key Moments (lets you jump to the most important moments of the match), both of which greatly enhance the viewing experience for those watching on-demand. Kayo also has a Minis feature, which allows fans to watch a multi hours match in a version condensed into just 15-30 minutes.* Considering every game of the tournament will run into the early hours of the morning, this unique Cricket on demand option will be key in allowing you to stay on top of the action.

South Africa Match Previews

The eyes of cricketing fans around the globe will be firmly fixed on South Africa as they kick off the ICC Cricket World Cup with a clash against England on the 30th of May. Both of these teams are expected to be either in or close to the final four come the end of the tournament, and both teams will be looking to kick off the tournament on a high note.

Six long weeks later, South Africa will be hoping to consolidate their place in the finals when they face Australia on the 6th of July. The last match of the Group Stage, this one will likely decide final positions in the top four, and as a result is one not to be missed.

South Africa’s ICC Cricket World Cup Results

After missing the first four World Cups as a result of the anti-apartheid movement which saw them banned from international tours until 1991, South Africa made it through to a semi-final in their first ever World Cup in 1992. Unfortunately, this was the beginning of a trend which would see them make four semi-finals in their first seven World Cup tournaments – none of which they won.

Included amongst those semi-finals was a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of New Zealand, who successfully chased down a huge total of 298 in just 42.5 overs in a rain-affected match in 2015, and a hugely disappointing effort against Australia in 2007 in which they were bundled out for just 149.
