Three of the best international teams in women’s cricket are set to go head to head in the upcoming T20I Tri Series, which takes place across Australia during January and February. Australia, England and India will all be looking to lay down a marker and prove their credentials before the T20 World Cup this March.
As the first delivery approaches, fans of Women’s T20 cricket are asking which games will be broadcast on Australian TV, what time they take place, and how they can watch the action live. Using this viewing guide you can stay up to date with all of these details and more.
Women’s Tri Nation Cricket on Australian TV
This series sees Australia, India and England play each other twice in a league format, with the top two teams advancing to the final on February 12 in St Kilda, Victoria. Meg Lanning’s ladies go into the series as favourites on home soil and will want to show the competition, especially England, exactly why they are ranked as the world’s number one side. Australia’s ladies are fresh off the back of the domestic WBBL, so you feel that the side will be in great touch and perfectly placed for some big scores with the likes of Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner and Elyse Perry all bang in form.
England are heading down under for revenge after being hammered by Australia in last year’s Ashes, and will be looking to captain Heather Knight to draw upon her experience in the recent Women’s Big Bash League. Australia have faced their northern hemisphere rivals on 34 occasions, with the English taking 18 victories to the Aussie’s 16, so expect some close encounters.
India are the lowest ranked team in the Tri Nation series (4th) but have one of the best players in the world at their disposal in the shape of captain and T20 specialist Harmanpreet Kaur. As cricket is the biggest sport in India, their fanatical fans will be expectant and looking for their women to make inroads against the best two teams pre-World Cup, starting with the tournament’s opening game against England on January 31.
