Watch England vs West Indies ICC 2016 final



Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.

ICC World Twenty20

If you’re looking for an official place to watch England vs West Indies in the ICC World Twenty20 cricket final then you’ve come to the right place.

Finding sports streams for major sports like Cricket can be a nightmare. Unless you’re prepared to pay for premium subscription services like Sky TV in the UK or other networks around the world then you’re often left being unable to watch your favourite sport.

As England are about to take on the West Indies if you’re like me and you don’t have access to a premium TV package then you’ve probably looked online. Unfortunately most online streams are illegal and hosted on dodgy websites. Just visiting one of those websites can fill your computer with nasty viruses and trojans that could even lock all your files and hold you to ransom to get them back.

Luckily I’ve found a great official stream of the ICC World Twenty20 final and I’m going to show you how you can watch too.

Watch England vs West Indies ICC 2016 final

In India there is an online streaming service called Starsports and on this website they’ve shown all of the ICC World Twenty20 2016 cricket matches so far. They’ll be showing the final between England and the West Indies live online on Sunday, 3rd April 2016 at 19:00 IST.

That’s about 14:30 in the UK, 23:30 in Sydney, Australia and around 09:30 in Barbados.

If you’re outside India and you try to visit the site you’re blocked from viewing but there is a really simple way around that block.

An example of a block message you may see.

So, how do you bypass that block?

A simple tool called a Virtual Private Network (VPN) will let you virtually reside in any country in the world. When you visit the Starsports website it checks your location and if you’re not in India then it blocks you.

With a VPN you can appear as if you are in India even though you’re somewhere else and rather than be blocked it’ll stream you the ICC World Twenty20 final between England and the West Indies, simple!

You’re probably wondering where you get one of these VPN things, so let’s find out.

Where to get a VPN

If you want to watch the ICC World Twenty20 final then you need a VPN service that supports India and not all do.

The second thing you need to be aware of is it needs to be a decent VPN service with good speeds otherwise the cricket will be full of buffering and stopping that will no doubt ruin your enjoyment.

I’ve been testing various VPN services to find out which is the best for watching the cricket final and through my tests found the following three services to be the best options.

  1. IPVanish
  2. Overplay
  3. ExpressVPN

Just click one of the provider names above to visit their site or click the red button below to visit the best service.

Next read the step-by-step guide below to see how easy it is to use the VPN service to watch the ICC World Twenty20 final.

How to use the VPN

Once you’ve signed up to a VPN service of your choice you should download their Windows or Mac software. You can find links in your welcome email or on their website.
