Cricket betting offers far more opportunities than a mere stake on the result. In the modern day, with three forms of the game in place, cricket provides more options than ever before and Unibet strives to quote everything that the punter needs.
Live Streaming Cricket Events
Aside from that match result, markets for team totals, most sixes, most fours, highest scoring batsman and top wicket taker are among the extensive list of cricket betting options. To back up that schedule, Unibet TV provides coverage of the biggest events from around the world so you need never miss a wicket or a boundary as the game progresses.
Unibet TV streams live cricket from Australia and beyond with test matches, one day internationals, T20 internationals and global T20 tournaments on the menu. It’s a feast of cricket but many viewers will want to focus on the domestic action.
Here are the main events covered by our live streaming service.
T20 Big Bash League
India may have its IPL but at the height of the Australian summer, the Big Bash League comes to town. Having first started in 2011, the Big Bash traditionally gets underway before Christmas and, following a brief break for the festive holiday season, it continues right into the New Year.
Talks of changes to the format are frequent but for now, each Big Bash series consists of eight teams from around the country. Melbourne Stars, Melbourne Renegades, Perth Scorchers, Adelaide Strikers, Sydney Sixers, Sydney Thunder, Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes are the sides in contention ahead of several weeks of top class T20 action.
Perth Scorchers are the most successful team in the history of the competition, having won three of the first nine Big Bash editions. Sydney Sixers won their second title at the start of 2020 and will be looking to match that record as the tournament moves forward. To match the thrills on the cricket field, Unibet have a wide set of Big Bash markets available and a comprehensive live streaming service to back it all up.
T20 World Cup 2021
They may be the most successful side in the history of the 50 over World Cup but, in the T20 version, Australia have failed to win any of the first six editions. Fans will be hoping that this unfortunate record is addressed when the tournament returns in 2021.
The seventh T20 World Cup is scheduled to run from October into November with 16 of the world’s best short form exponents involved. West Indies are the defending champions and they are the most successful team in the history of the competition with two wins to date.
England will also be hopeful of success having narrowly lost out to the Windies in the 2016 final. Eoin Morgan’s men are the reigning 50 over World Cup champions and Australian fans will not need reminding that England eased past them in the 2010 final of this competition.
Other former champions in the 2021 field will include India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
It’s going to be a tough challenge for the Australians but, with the benefit a strong squad, Aussie supporters will be confident of success. If the likes of David Warner, Aaron Finch, Glen Maxwell, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are fit and firing, Australia can be in a good position to claim their first title. Unibet TV will be with you all the way with matches covered from the group stage, all the way through to the final.
In the present day, 12 countries play test cricket but for Australian and English supporters, it’s all about one competition. England and Australia first played cricket in Melbourne back in 1877 but The Ashes were not introduced as a trophy until the tourists won a memorable, low scoring match at The Oval in 1882.
Since then, The Ashes has been seen as the most competitive battle in world cricket and, over the years, we’ve seen some incredible test series. The controversial bodyline tour in 1932-33, England’s incredible comeback in 1981 and Australia’s more recent ‘whitewash’ victories have become an unforgettable part of the game’s history.
Great players have graced The Ashes and, in the present day, some of the world’s highest ranked cricketers feature on either side. For Australia, there is the indomitable batting of Steve Smith and the devastating hitting of David Warner. Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are the new ball strikeforce while spinner Nathan Lyon has an impressive haul of Ashes wickets.
For England, current skipper Joe Root is one of the best batsmen in world cricket and he’s ably backed by all-rounder Ben Stokes. Seam bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad are the highest wicket takers for their country, so the Ashes battles from 2021/22 onwards should be tight and thrilling affairs.
For all Ashes cricket coverage, Unibet.tv will be on hand to capture the drama as it unfolds. The two sides are also scheduled to play regular one day internationals and T20is so remember to look out for those on our schedules.
Matches in Australia and England are picked up but, this is a global sport and all the big games from across the world are shown here. Test cricket, ODIs, T20s and global team tournaments are all part of the fun so, why not log on, take a look at our cricket markets and catch up with all the action at Unibet TV.
