Live Streaming Cricket / Highlights: India vs Australia

Chinnaswami Stadium in Bangalore. Action begins at 2:30 pm India Time (8:00 pm GMT). In India you can catch live cricket action on Neo Sports, but there are a number of cricket fans stationed across the world who are hampered by lack of live telecast on TV or due to the huge rates charged by TV Channels on the pay-per-view basis. So here’s a lowdown on places on the nets where you can catch live cricket streaming. I’ve tried to give a summary of the websites, packages and associated features (including live cricket streaming sopcasts).

1. Willow.TV: You can catch the live cricket webcasts here through the Dish Network and Nimbus Sports. Features available: Live Streaming, On Demand Replays and Highlights of the India-Australia matches, Interactive Highlights and Mobile Commentary.

The site is also providing live streaming facility for the Sri Lanka – England Series. Plus English and Lanka fans get to avail of the benefits of on-demand highlights, on-demand replays, interactive highlights and mobile commentary.

South Africa begins its tour to Pakistan on Oct 1 with the first test at Karachi. The South Africa-Pakistan series comprises 2 tests and 5 one-dayers. This series is also available live at Willow.

For more details and package rates, check with their website.

2. Action8Cricket through LiveSportsOnline.Info is claiming :
Environment / Easy user Pannel
1. Best Service

2. 1Tb LAN Card Streaming.

3. Easy to Use member Area.

4. Live Media Player Streaming.

Features available: Live Cricket Scores, Audio Streaming and Live Streaming Video

Now while Willow might be the best option, it is not available in all countries ( available in North America and UK for sure but I am not sure if you can catch live streaming cricket on Willow if you are in Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai, Kuwait and quite a few other places with large Indian populations who may be keen to watch their team live.)

You can also check out IndianPad ( I couldn’t understand the site one bit but you can check out if you are really desperate), DesiKotha and DaruChini.

Most of the better sites are regular now. So for more details on sites for watching the India-Australia series live or the Pakistan-South Africa one, you can check out the previous 2 posts I had done on the same topic.
