How to watch the Men's 2023 ODI ICC Cricket World Cup live in Australia

In Australia, every match of the Men's ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 is being televised live and ad-break free during play by Fox Cricket.

That means Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo are all options for catching all the cricket action.

18 matches during the tournament will be broadcast live and free on the Nine Network and streamed via 9Now, but they will contain ads.

Watch Men's 2023 ODI ICC Cricket World Cup live and free

You can watch the Cricket World Cup live and free on the 9 Network or via 9Now. They will screen 18 matches throughout the tournament, including the opening match featuring the 2019 final replay of England vs New Zealand, every Australian match, the semi-finals and final.

Depending on the game, they may screen on either Channel 9 or one of their multichannels such as 9Gem, so check your local guides to see where you can find it on free-to-air TV.

Alternatively, you can stream the same matches on 9Now.

So while this may work if you follow Australia or a high profile team like India, if you're interested in the progress of some of the other nations, this may not be the best option for you.

As both Kayo and Foxtel Now recently discontinued their free trials, that means watching the Cricket World Cup on Channel 9 is your only option to watch the tournament or free.

Livestream ICC Cricket World Cup on Kayo

You can stream every match of the Men's ICC Cricket World Cup live on Kayo. Kayo starts at $25 which lets you watch on 1 screen at a time. For $35 or $35 a month, you can get 2 or 3 simultaneous streams respectively. There is no free trial for Kayo, as it was discontinued on 26 September 2023.

As well as the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup, Kayo has lots of other cricket action including the local Australian domestic ODI competitions the WNCL and Marsh Cup, plus the upcoming BBL. All up, Kayo has access to more than 50 sports.
