For Aussie cricket fans, 2019 is going to be a defining year. Steve Smith looks set to return to lead the charge in the northern hemisphere as Australia takes on England and the rest of the world in the ICC Cricket World Cup, before both the Australian men and women’s teams face the old enemy again in the latest installment of The Ashes. Then later in the year, the action returns Down Under for the Australian summer of cricket. But how are you going to watch it all? Canstar Blue explains your options.
