How to watch International & Aussie Cricket this summer

Summer is officially here, and you know what that means. Much like Peter Siddle’s birthday hat-trick, the Australian summer of cricket has arrived unexpectedly on a random day in November — but desperately needed nonetheless. We think we speak for many Australians when we say that after a long year, it’s good to finally welcome the comfort of cricket back with open arms. Personally, we can’t think of anything better than lying on the couch on Boxing Day with leftover ham in one hand and the remote in the other. But where can Aussies actually catch the summer of international cricket? Check out our guide below.

How can I watch cricket in Australia?

Both international and domestic cricket is available live and on-demand on both Foxtel and Kayo, with some international cricket broadcasted live on channel Seven and 7Mate.

Fox Sports holds the exclusive rights to broadcast every Test match, ODI, International T20, Big Bash game and Women’s matches, which means you can catch every ball on Foxtel and Kayo both live and on-demand.

Free-to-air channels Seven and 7Mate only hold the rights to broadcast Test cricket, the occasional Women’s game, and the Big Bash. If you’re a diehard cricket fan, it may be worth checking out the Foxtel Packages for Foxtel Cricket, or Kayo for unlimited streaming.

Although international cricket is hard to beat, sometimes you’re just in the mood to catch a high-energy game of the Big Bash League, or other domestic leagues. Aussies can catch the BBL either live on free-to-air on Channel Seven and 7Mate, or choose between live or on-demand streaming on Foxtel and Kayo. For more info on the Big Bash, check out Canstar Blue’s guide on how to watch the Big Bash League this summer and get the full schedule to catch the action.
