Where to watch Cricket World Cup live streams free from anywhere 

Australia is one of the only countries with a free Cricket World Cup live stream, courtesy of streaming service 9Now (some will be on sister channel 9Gem; check full TV guide listings here).

You won’t find every scheduled Cricket World Cup match there, but you can be sure all of the matches that Australia’s playing will air, and there are a handful more outside that bunch, including both semi-finals and the final match. Here’s a complete list of free matches you can view at 9Now:

Normally, 9Now requires you to be an Australian resident, but you can use a VPN to circumvent the block and sign up for a free account to access the streaming service. A VPN virtually changes your devices’ location, so apps and websites think you’re connecting from servers within those countries.

In the case of the Cricket World Cup, you can connect through an Australian server, and 9Now will let you in with no fuss after creating a free email login.

You can also use VPNs to sign up for cheap streaming services such as ESPN Plus in the United States, which will show all Cricket World Cup games starting at $5.99 monthly.

Don’t have a VPN? There’s a fantastic offer right now on the best VPN we’ve tested and have been using for years for streaming and beefing up our online security. You can pick up ExpressVPN, save 49% on the usual price, and get three months for free. It’s the best investment in your sports-watching future if you know you’ll want to watch more international sports streams.

If you’re unsatisfied, there’s a hassle-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Want to learn more about the product? Take a look at our ExpressVPN review.
