Australia Cricket Free to Air TV Schedule
The 2018 Zimbabwe Tri-Nations series involving Australia, Pakistan and the host country will be held from July 1-8, at the Harare Sports Club in Zimbabwe, with all the matches played as T20 Internationals (T20Is)

Australia, off a disappointing showing in England, will be eager to punch their ticket to the Final on July 8 and be counted as the top T20 team in the world, and using the information provided here you won’t have to miss a minute of the action when watching live on TV or streaming the matches to a mobile device.

2018 Australia Tour of Zimbabwe

England didn’t fare particularly well for the most part when they visited Australia late last year, but they did manage to walk away with a 4-1 win in the ODI series. As a result, they leap-frogged India in the world rankings, and now sit atop the table as the best ODI team in the world. Australia, in contrast, are currently in fifth place, far below where the proud cricketing nation would like to find themselves. Their last ODI series was earlier this season when they were comfortably beaten by England, and in this one they will be without star batsman and captain Steve Smith, and explosive opener David Warner, who have both been suspended for ball tampering.

England, who have recently welcomed back all-rounder Ben Stokes to their lineup, will be feeling confident. After winning 4-1 in the Australian ODI series, their opponent has lost two of its best players, while England have regained on of their best, and the series will be on home soil this time around. Australia, however, rarely go down without a fight, and this series will be compelling viewing but you won’t find this exciting Cricket Australia series free to air in your city or state.

T20 Tri-Series Preview (Australia, Pakistan and Zimbabwe)

In July of 2018, Australia and Pakistan will visit Zimbabwe for what will be a particularly brief series. Each side will play each other two times over the course of six days, before a final will be fought out by the top two sides on July 8 at Harare. The matchup is a rarity, with Zimbabwe not often being involved in series against Australia.

The home side is the 11th ranked team in the world and will head into the series as the rank underdogs. Neither Australia nor Pakistan are at the peak of their powers, but given they are ranked 5th and 6th respectively in the world ODI rankings, they should at least provide a tight contest. The series won’t be broadcast on free to air television, but you can stream Cricket in Australia live online with the Foxtel app.

South Africa Tour of Australia Preview

The last time these two sides met, things didn’t go so well for the Australian’s. Not only did they lose the four-match Test series 3-1, but they were caught ball-tampering, resulting in the one-year suspension of captain Steven Smith and star batsman David Warner, the nine-month suspension of Cameron Bancroft, and ultimately the resignation of coach Darren Lehmann. The loss wasn’t the first time they have been troubled by the South Africans: Australia have lost just two test series at home since 2010/11, and both have been to their African rivals.

This tour won’t entail any Test matches but will instead see the two sides square off in a three-game ODI series and a single Cricket T20I. The last time they met the Springboks in an ODI was back in the 2016/17 season, when Australia visited South Africa. The home side promptly won 5-0. Australia will evidently be looking for a different result this time around, but with two of their best players out and a string of recent bad form, they’ll need to produce a significant turnaround. None of the three ODI’s or the T20I will be available on free to air television, but all four games will be broadcast on Foxtel, and available to watch online with Foxtel Now.
