That’s 16 days of LIVE Women’s International T20 cricket, starting from February 21st and concluding on March 8th.
Foxtel’s coverage comes via their Fox Cricket channel which specialises in both white and red ball forms of the game. The commentary will be provided by Isa Guha and Mel Jones, alongside World Cup winning captain Alex Blackwell and reporter Megan Barnard. As well as the Women’s T20 World Cup competition, Fox Cricket will show several other international head to heads including the Australian men’s tour of South Africa, the upcoming test series between Sri Lanka and England, and the 2020 Indian Premier League. Fortunately, there is more than one way to access Fox Cricket on Australian TV, they include Foxtel, Foxtel Now, Foxtel from Telstra and the Kayo Sports streaming platform, with each game available Live and in HD.

Watch the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on Network Nine
Channel Nine and their sister station 9Gem are the T20 World Cup free to air options for those who aren’t interested in the non-Australian matches or the variety of other sport available during this same time. Nine will show all four of Australia’s group games, along with the two semi finals and the final. That’s just seven of the twenty-three World Cup matches in total, and does not include some of the biggest rivalries in the sport, such as England vs South Africa, India vs New Zealand, England vs West Indies and more.
It’s also important to note that neither Nine or 9Gem are offering replays during the tournament, which means if you solely depend on this option you will have to make time to watch the matches live. The Nine Network is also very light on in game TV features, such as high definition and the ability to watch other sporting events that may be happening at the same time, plus options when it comes to streaming on a number of different devices. Their coverage will be fronted by the likes of Ian Healy and Michael Slater, in what will be one of the penultimate international cricket event of the Network’s current broadcast deal with Cricket Australia.
