Live Cricket Schedules, Dates, Channels & Start Times
Want to know what live cricket is on TV, what channel it’s on and when it starts? As the home of live sport on TV, at LiveSport.Center we’ve got you covered! The listings above show you exactly what you need to know, so you’ll never miss any televised cricket again.
The great news for fans is that there are more live cricket matches being shown on TV than ever before. In the past we had England’s summer test matches free on terrestrial TV, which was great. But that was it! We then had to wait all year to see the next test series, with nothing shown in between.
These days, things are a little different.
What Can I Watch?
Test match cricket is still considered by many as the “pure” form of the game, and there’s still plenty of it on TV. The obvious highlight of the calendar is the Ashes series between England and Australia, and these games still attract the biggest audiences. But it’s not just England any more, now you can also watch test cricket from South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies, India and other nations all around the world.
However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The rising popularity of the shorter forms of the game means there is now limited overs cricket being shown nearly every day. You can watch One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 cricket, plus club games as well.
That includes the Natwest T20 series in the UK, plus IPL and Big Bash matches from India and Australia. The list goes on. Plus, there’s the big one…
ICC Cricket World Cup – Live On TV
Held every 4 years, the Cricket World Cup is definitely one of the highlights of the sporting calendar. The 2019 tournament is to be held in England and Wales, and promises to be the most widely viewed World Cup yet! All fixtures are being shown live on TV in the UK, so make sure you’ve got your Sky subscription set up before the end of May!
Where To Watch
The majority of live cricket is shown on Sky Sports. You will need to get a subscription to watch, but if you’re a fan of the game then it’ll be well worth it. The majority of live matches are broadcast on their dedicated channel, Sky Sports Cricket. Some of the more popular games are also simulcast on their Main Event channel.
The quality of match coverage on these channels is second to none. The punditry, commentary and analysis just keeps getting better with time. They have this habit of keeping you not only interested but positively glued to the screen in case you miss something. So even if you think cricket is slow, you’ll certainly never get bored.
Get yourself a subscription or maybe just a day pass to try it out, and you’ll see what we mean.Listings updated on
