How to watch South Africa vs Australia cricket 2018



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.

The South Africa tour of Australia is well under way and if you’re looking for a place to watch the games then you’re not alone.

Watching Cricket can be hard at the best of times, especially if you don’t have access to one of the expensive cable-networks.

If you’re in a country that doesn’t show much cricket but you’re a South Africa or Aussie fan then it can be even more difficult.

In this guide I’ll be showing you how you can watch the South Africa tour of Australia online from anywhere in the world.

What you need to watch South Africa vs Australia

In a lot of countries it’s hard to watch the cricket for free but in India it’s being streamed live online officially for free.

If you’re outside of India and you try to watch this live stream then you’ll be blocked.

You’ll be happy to know there’s an app called a ‘VPN‘ that will allow you to disguise your location and make it seem as if you are in India. The result is you can watch all the South Africa vs Australia games in any country.

How to get a VPN to watch the games

The first thing you’ll need to do is get yourself a VPN app. They’re sold by many different companies but I recommend using ExpressVPN.

A VPN service will cost a couple of dollars per month and they’re cheaper if you sign up for longer periods.

If you do a quick search of Google then you’ll find hundreds of options but not all are suitable for watching the South Africa vs Australia matches. It’s important to find a VPN app that offers an Indian connection also known as an ‘India Server’.

I’ve listed three of the best below that do, all you need to do is pick any one of them.

  1. ExpressVPN – 30 day money back guarantee, recommended!
  2. IPVanish
  3. NordVPN
