Watch India cricket matches on Kayo Sports
Kayo Sports has over 50 sports. As Australia's first solely dedicated sports streaming service it isn't limited to what it can show. That's great news for Indian cricket fans as it's the most likely service to broadcast India matches. Kayo has all of Australia's cricket and the IPL.
A subscription to Kayo costs $25/month for the Basic subscription. This will give you access to watch from two separate devices at once. Otherwise there's the Premium subscription for $35/month and another device to watch from. You can test it out with this 14-day free trial.
Kayo also has several different features for viewers to use. There's a Key Moments Timeline that skips ahead to the best bits, SplitView (watch four events at once), No Spoilers and Kayo Minis, which are a special condensed version of matches.
You can stream Kayo from almost any device. Watch from PCs/Macs, iOS and Android devices, Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV and Telstra TV. For more information see our Kayo Sports review.
Watch India cricket matches on Foxtel iQ
Foxtel iQ is the only way you can get sport in 4K quality. While that's awesome, the price is not, especially if you're only keen to watch India matches. New customers need to add on the Sports HD channels for $25/month.
However, new customers may be able to find a Foxtel iQ deal. There's a huge catch with Foxtel that you can't just get the sports channels and you must also have the base Foxtel Plus package, which is $49/month.
So to just watch India cricket series you'd be paying huge money at $74/month. You would at least become part of the Foxtel First loyalty program and get access to Foxtel GO. However, you can just get the exact same channels on their own with Kayo Sports.

Stream India cricket matches on Foxtel Now
If you want to ditch a set-top box for streaming, but remain with Foxtel, then Foxtel Now could suit. Again there's that pesky issue of not solely being able to have the Sport pack for $29/month. This time the base Essentials pack costs less at $25/month, which is at least cheaper than iQ.
Foxtel Now can be watched from PCs/Macs, mobile devices, Chromecast/Airplay, PS4, Telstra TV, Android TV and the Foxtel Now box. New customers are offered a 10-day free trial and once more you'll have access to Foxtel GO.
Can I watch India cricket matches on free-to-air TV?
The only time you can watch India on free-to-air is if they're touring Australia or playing against Australia in a World Cup. Given the fact that Australian cricket matches outside of Australia aren't shown on free-to-air TV except The Ashes, this shouldn't be a surprise. Some World Cup matches may potentially be shown, but not series such as India vs West Indies.
