Australia vs England Cricket World Cup preview
What an intriguing match-up Match 32 of the Cricket World Cup has in store for fans. Ahead of the tournament, England would have been clear favourites for the match, ranked number one in the world and playing at home. However, losses to Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the tournament have given the side the wobbles.
Australia, on the other hand, have looked solid without ever really getting out of first gear. When we look at the World Cup stats, we can see that David Warner is the second highest run scorer in the tournament thus far, with Finch and Smith also in the top 10. Mitchell Starc is tied as top wicket taker, too, with Cummins also in the top 10.
No Australia vs England cricket contest unfolds without drama, ensuring the match on 25 June at Lord's is a must-watch event.

Free Australia vs England live stream on Kayo Sports
Kayo Sports is Australia's newest live sports streaming service and it's rather excellent. It takes the 14 best channels from Foxtel's premium Sport Pack and places them, and over 50 sports live and on demand, in its own unique sport-focused service. It's available as an app on iOS and Android, via browsers on PC or Mac, and on your TV through Chromecast (here's a guide), Android TV, Apple TV or Telstra TV.
The Kayo Sports experience is unlike any you would have enjoyed before. It offers a Netflix-style user interface that doesn't present sport in channels, but as individual hubs with live content, highlights, historical matches, chat shows, interviews, pre-match coverage and more all in one spot. On top of that you have a host of unique viewing features, like SplitView (four channels at once), picture-in-picture mode, hide scores, Key Moments timeline and more.
It's the future of watching sport in Australia.
The service itself does cost $25 per month for two simultaneous streams (or $35 for three), but thanks to a 14-day free trial , you can instantly sign up now and watch England vs Australia for free. Plus, looking at the schedule, you'd also get to see Australia vs New Zealand, Australia vs South Africa, England vs India and England vs New Zealand in that free trial period.
Free Australia vs England live stream on Foxtel Now
Using a similar method to the above process with Kayo Sports, you can also use the 10-day Foxtel Now free trial to access England vs Australia on FOX CRICKET without cost. Where Foxtel Now differs is that it doesn't offer the same sport-specific viewing features or the modern user interface of Kayo, plus if you continue with the service it jumps to $54 per month.
The benefit of Foxtel Now is that as part of the trial and the ongoing cost you do get access to non-sports channels. This includes FOX8, Lifestyle and Showcase (which has all the HBO content like Game of Thrones, Westworld and True Detective). Foxtel Now is available on Xbox and some smart TVs in addition to the other devices.
