The best young cricket talent in the world is ready to show the world what they’re made of on the big stage, with the 2020 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Finals set to begin on the 28th of January, and Kayo Sports will be broadcasting every match of the knock-out stage live and in high definition.
The format of the tournament will see multiple games played at the same time on each day, with Kayo streaming a total of twenty matches, including every game of the Finals which kick off on the 28th of January.
Where to Watch the ICC U19 World Cup Live in Australia
The games which are broadcast on Foxtel will also be available on Kayo Sports, meaning you can stream all the matches of the tournament wherever you may be. This will include not only Australia’s opening game against the West Indies, but also our U19 side’s massive clash against long-time rival England on the 23rd of January. Other major games included in Kayo’s scheduling include India v New Zealand on the 24th of January, as well as every game of the U19 World Cup Finals which begin on January 28th.
This edition of the tournament, which has been held biennially since 1998, shapes up as must-watch TV, with a number of teams in the mix to claim the most prestigious underage cricket award in the world. Much as is the case at the top level, India, Australia and England have the most talented squads, and the eventual winner is likely to come from this group. The likes of South Africa and Pakistan, however, are not far behind, and it wouldn’t surprise to see either of those two teams competing at the business end of the event.
