What’s In The Guide
Stream Cricket Live in Australia
Cricket might be the number one sport every summer in Australia, but the game doesn’t just stop when winter kicks in. All three formats are truly global, meaning that there are boundaries, wickets and run-chases galore throughout the calendar year.
2021 is set to be a huge 12 months for the game. April sees the return of the IPL, the most recognised and successful domestic T20 tournament in cricket featuring the sport’s biggest names. Focus then changes to the test arena in June for the inaugural Test Championship Final at Lords, London, where the first-ever Test World Champions will be crowned.
Attention then moves to white-ball cricket for the 2021 T20 World Cup in India, where the West Indies will be looking for a record third win in October and November. And, as if saving the best ‘til last, there’s a home Ashes series set to get underway from November 22nd. Exciting times indeed!
