Cricket fans will be bowled over by the packed Australian summer cricket schedule coming to LIVENow.  Players from around the world will take part in a safe, summer season of cricket for fans to enjoy at home.

From Tuesday November 10, fans can experience select games from the Rebel Women’s Big Bash League, Australia’s world renowned T20 cricket competition. Now in its sixth season, more rebel WBBL games will be broadcast than ever before and are available to watch free on LIVENow. 

In late November, the Indian and Australian men’s sides will face off during the three-match Dettol ODI Series at the Sydney Cricket Ground (November 27, 29) and Manuka Oval, Canberra (December 2). That will be followed by the three-match Dettol T20 International Series at Manuka Oval, Canberra (December 4) and the Sydney Cricket Ground (December 6, 8).   The Australian men’s team is currently ranked No. 1 in the world in the ICC’s T20I rankings and posted a thrilling 2-0 away series win over India last year. India, however, holds a 5-4 win-loss advantage over Australia in its past ten T20I matches. 

The Vodafone Test Series will span across four Tests as both sides battle it out for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, starting with the historic first ever day-night Test between Australia and India at the Adelaide Oval on December 17.  The two international cricket superpowers will go on to meet at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the Boxing Day Test (December 26), the Sydney Cricket Ground (January 7) and Brisbane’s Gabba (January 15). 

Prior to the Test series starting, Australia’s domestic T20 tournament, the KFC Big Bash League, will launch its tenth season on Thursday, December 10.  Renowned for its big hitting, fireworks and action-packed cricket, the opening stretch of matches will be played in Tasmania and Canberra. 

“To bolster our live sports programming with such great content is a real win for us at LIVENow,” explains Marc Watson, Director at LIVENow.  “Cricket fans will have plenty to choose from and sports fans looking to discover something new can easily access these matches from home. We’re pleased to be able to showcase the best of what’s on offer and bring Australia’s summer season of cricket to an international audience on LIVENow.”
