Australia will take on New Zealand in five T20Is during February and March 2021. Whenever these two Trans-Tasman rivals meet there is always plenty of fireworks, which should mean tons of runs and wickets!
As the first delivery nears, Australian cricket fans are asking if the series will be broadcast on Australian TV, when games start, and how they can stream it all live? Using this viewing guide you can stay up to date with all of these details and more.
Australia Tour of New Zealand on Live TV
This five-game series will take place from February 22nd – March 7th, 2021, in grounds across New Zealand. The two sides have plenty of history in this format of the game, and both currently possess some of the best white-ball cricketers in the world.
Both Australia and New Zealand will have one eye on finding their best line-ups for the upcoming T20 World Cup, set to take place in India during October and November. The Aussies have had a lot more success in the T20 game and currently sit second in the world rankings.
The Black Caps currently occupy sixth spot, but their showing in the 2019 ODI World Cup proves that they can never be written off, especially on home soil.
How to Stream Australia v New Zealand T20I Live
Kayo Sports will be your home of Australian cricket in 2021, showing not only the T20I series against New Zealand live and in high definition, but every other major Aussie cricket match. Kayo offers live streaming options on a variety of devices and browsers, including PCs and Macs, iOS and Android phones and tablets, Apple and Telstra TV, as well as the popular Google Chromecast, Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Microsoft Edge, with more apps and platforms soon to be added.
Kayo Sports offers an array of great features which will make your cricket viewing experience even better. Every boundary and delivery will be displayed in High Definition, giving you greater clarity as you watch the best in the world go about their business, while the SplitView feature enables you to watch up to four different games simultaneously on the same screen. Kayo also has a No Spoilers option, which allows fans to hide all the scores so you won’t know the results before you’ve watched. It’s a very handy feature if you’re skipping around to other sport in progress during game play, and don’t want to know the outcomes before you’ve had a chance to watch a replay of an important event.
And perhaps one of the more practical aspects of Kayo is the ‘Minis’ feature which is available across all their cricket coverage. Kayo Minis are a condensed on demand version of a full match, and will compress a full match of cricket into just 15-30 minutes – ideal for games that take place when you don’t have the time to watch.
