The finals matchup was set up after England's easy win over India — beating them by 10 wickets — clinched their spot in the finals. Pakistan wasn't too shabby either, beating New Zealand by 7 wickets. 

Pakistan's Cinderella story saw them move from the edge of an exit to the finals, as Netherlands beat South Africa, allowing Pakistan to make it to the Semis. England? Well, captain Jos Buttler and opening partner Alex Hales hit their 169 target in 16 overs, while Chris Jordan took 3 of the 6 Indian wickets.

So read on for our full guide to how to watch the T20 World Cup 2022 — and if you're looking for more sport this weekend, you might also be interested in our guides NFL live streams and the World Cup 2022 live streams.

How to watch T20 World Cup 2022 live streams from anywhere

It's natural that you might want to watch the T20 World Cup 2022 cricket coverage from your home country — after all, there's nothing like enjoying the action with commentators and pundits you already know. But what if you're not there when the game is on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch the T20 World Cup 2022 live stream from Sky Sports, even though they're not in the U.K. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. 

It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sky Sports or another service and watch the match.

You'll be able to watch every T20 World Cup 2022 match live in the U.K. on Sky Sports and via the Sky Go app. Every game will be on Sky Sports Cricket, with some also on Sky Sports Main Event, and there'll also be plenty of supporting coverage including highlights and analysis packages. 

If you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £22/month to add those channels. If you don't have Sky at all, it'll cost you at least £41/month, depending on which other channels you choose.

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.99 or month-long access for £34.99 — though you'll also need to pay an extra £5/month for full HD quality plus the ability to watch on up to 3 screens at once. Still, Now Sports is available on virtually every streaming device out there and is a great option if you don't already have Sky and just want to watch for a fixed period. 

All sounds great, right? But if you're not in the U.K., you can still follow the games by using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN.

Despite the USA not having qualified for the tournament, American cricket fans have a couple of choices when it comes to the T20 World Cup 2022. 

The entire tournament will be shown on the excellently named Willow TV, which is available via various cable packages including Dish, Fios, Spectrum, Xfinity and more.

But if you've cut the cord and don't have cable, don't worry — because you can also watch Willow via Sling TV. You do not need a Sling subscription, and you can get Willow for $7 for the first month and $10 every month after. So you could watch the entire T20 World Cup 2021 for just $7. 

Another option is ESPN Plus, which will also be showing every game in the T20 World Cup; subscribers can also stream the game through the ESPN Plus website. 

But what if you already use those services but aren't in the U.S. right now? As we explained above, your best bet will be to use a VPN such as ExpressVPN so you can access them wherever you are.

Sling TV

Sling TV offers three packages, starting at $40 a month. Willow TV is available a-la-carte.

Aussies also get a couple of options for where to watch the T20 World Cup 2022, in the form of Fox Sports or Kayo Sports

Fox is available as part of many pay TV packages, but if you don't already have it then Kayo might be a better bet. It can be accessed via a dedicated mobile or tablet app, and also on Chromecast and Apple TV — plus it costs a very reasonable $25 AUD per month for the basic package. A premium subscription is also available for $35 AUD per month, but this merely gives you the ability to access three simultaneous streams, rather than two. 

Plus, there's a 7-day free trial available if you want to try the service before committing to a subscription. 

Not in Australia right now? You can simply use ExpressVPN to watch all the action on your Fox or Kayo account, as if you were back home.

New Zealanders can see how the Black Caps get on in the T20 World Cup on Sky Sport. This costs $57.98 NZD per month, or $31.99/month extra if you already have Sky but not Sport. Plus there's currently an offer which gives you your first month free when you sign up for a year.

Alternatively, you could go for the Sky Sport Now service, which gives you just the Sport channels but for a reduced cost of $19.99/week / $39.99/month or $399/year. 

Not at home in New Zealand right now? You can still follow every game by using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN
