The supporters of the most successful team of women’s cricket, Australia won’t have to pay to watch their country in action during the ICC Women’s World Cup next month. The announcement that came last month after Channel 9 refused to broadcast the Women’s World Cup, brought a sigh of relief for the fans with streaming service Kayo taking up the charge to broadcast all the matches on Kayo Freebies.
Giving the Australian fans a major boost, Fox Sports on Thursday announced the launch of a dedicated 24/7 channel for the big tournament starting March 4 in New Zealand.
Good news, cricket fans 💪

As per a report posted on their official website, the Foxtel channel would be broadcasting not just the Live matches, but also additional content related to the sport including highlights, mini matches, and other such things.
Confirming one such special broadcast in the report, Fox Sports shared that on March 8, which is celebrated as International Women’s Day, they would be having a special broadcast after the match between Australia and Pakistan as the day also marks 2 years of the former’s 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup title.
The Fox Sports report also saw Fox Cricket General Manager Matt Weiss commenting on the broadcast that would run in addition to Kayo Freebies.
“No broadcaster in Australia delivers more coverage of Women’s sport than Foxtel Group and Fox Cricket has been a big part of that.
“We delivered every game of the WBBL season for the first time this summer, extended our Ashes coverage and now have a dedicated World Cup channel to give this event the coverage it deserves and fuelling the hunger for more cricket from our growing audiences.” he said.
