The ICC World Cup 2019 has occupied the global cricketing calendar since the end of May, running over an enthralling seven week period which has seen at least one game played virtually every day. With a winner having been crowned and The Ashes kicking off in August, you’ll still be able to get your fix thanks to Kayo Sports. Australia’s most comprehensive sports streaming platform will have a plethora of international cricket available throughout the rest of 2019, ensuring lovers of the game still have plenty to look forward to.
Unsurprisingly, coverage of Australia – both the men’s and women’s teams – will be comprehensive, with both sides set to face off against Sri Lanka for short format series’ through September, October, and November. Following that, the men have got a couple of Test matches and three T20I’s against Pakistan to officially kick off the summer, before they host long-time rivals New Zealand.
2019 Cricket on Australian TV Preview
The Aussies will be favourite in all of these post-Ashes tours, particularly given they’ll all be on home soil, but keep an eye on the New Zealand series. The Kiwis have performed well in the shorter format at the World Cup and are the number two side in Test cricket, and given they play under similar conditions at home, they will be expecting to give the Aussies a real challenge.
These tours will draw the bulk of interest from cricket fans in Australia, but true lovers of the game will also be keen to keep an eye on what else is happening in world cricket, and fortunately, Kayo Sports has extensive coverage of a range of other major series which are set to take place around the globe in 2019.
In September/October, South Africa heads to India for what looms as a compelling three game Test series. India is the top ranked side in the world while South Africa is third, and each side boasts a number of players who could claim to be in the top handful in the world, so expect a high quality series on the sub-continent.
More Cricket Coverage on Kayo Sports
Kayo Sports will also show the rest of India’s season, which includes series’ against Bangladesh, the West Indies and Zimbabwe, while South Africa will head home to host England in what shapes up as another exciting tour. England are the number four side in the world, only marginally behind the South African’s, so the four-match Test series between the two will likely be a close one. And that’s not all, with three ODI’s and three T20I’s capping off an extended series between the two old foe’s, and all of it is set to air live on Kayo Sports.
And if you’re the impatient type and are looking for some international cricket immediately following the conclusion of the World Cup, Kayo has you covered too. The West Indies will play host to India for two Test matches, three ODI’s and three T20I’s in July and August, while across the globe Sri Lanka and New Zealand will be playing a couple of Tests and three ODI’s at the same time.
What’s more, Kayo Sports will also include an array of extra cricket related programming once the summer begins, even after the day’s play has wrapped up. There’ll be Cricket 360, an imitation of the hugely popular AFL 360, as well as Cricket Legends, Come in Spinner, Kohli with Gilly and much, much more. All in all, it’s shaping up as a huge few months of cricket on Kayo Sports. The ICC Cricket World Cup might be nearing its conclusion, but there’s still a whole lot of exciting cricket to come in 2019 and early in 2020.
