How to watch the Marsh One-Day Cup in Australia: TV guide
The summer of cricket is on its way with the Marsh One-Day Cup starting on 21 September. Live stream the action or watch on TV.
The Ashes might have only just finished, but the summer of cricket is only just beginning, with the Marsh One-Day Cup starting on 21 September. The Marsh One-Day cup is Australia's premier men's List A limited 50-over competition. Marsh has taken over from JLT as the new naming rights sponsor.
Last year's final saw Victoria prevail over Tasmania, for a first title in seven years.
This year's tournament will run from 21 September through to 26 November. The Rebel WBBL|05 begins in October.
The format of the competition is a round-robin tournament, so all sides clash at least once. Though it must be noted that all states will play seven matches, which means every team will play two opponents twice. There will be 21 matches plus a final to determine the winner.
Which teams play in the Marsh One-Day Cup?
The competition is contested by six different state teams. They are:
- New South Wales
- South Australia
- Western Australia
Which players will be in the Marsh One-Day Cup?
Fortunately for fans, the Australian cricket team's schedule will allow for current members to play in some games. This means the likes of Ashes representatives Travis Head (SA), James Pattinson (VIC), Steve Smith (NSW), Matt Wade (TAS), Usman Khawaja (QLD) and Mitch Marsh (WA) could play for their respective state teams.
Then there are also several other contracted Cricket Australia players who will use the tournament to push for selection in international matches held over the summer. Included among those are Moises Henriques (NSW), Aaron Finch (VIC), Adam Zampa (SA), Ben McDermott (TAS), Joe Burns (QLD) and Jhye Richardson (WA).
Where is the Marsh One-Day Cup played?
Interestingly, the majority of matches will move away from venues that have been used in recent seasons. Some fixtures will return to more traditional grounds like the SCG and MCG. Neutral venues will still host a few matches including the Allan Border Field. Then each team will utilise various cricketing grounds from their respective states.

Watch the Marsh One-Day Cup with Foxtel
Foxtel has a dedicated channel for cricket, but still won't have all the matches of the Marsh One-Day Cup available. As with Kayo, Foxtel has all the other cricket content mentioned above.
To watch sport on Foxtel IQ you need a package that has a Sport HD pack which starts at $25/month. It's also mandatory that you carry the base Essentials pack $49/month which has some Pop and Lifestyle channels available. This drags the cost right up to $74/month depending on current deals.
Alternatively you can sign up with Foxtel Now instead and access the same programming for $54/month. Again the base Essentials pack is a compulsory component of subscriptions, which is what bumps the price up. Both of the Foxtel options aren't likely to be suitable if you're just after the Marsh One-Day Cup, instead you should consider Kayo Sports.
Stream the Marsh One-Day Cup with the Cricket Network
To stream matches with the Cricket Network you need to log in to cricket.com.au. This is a complimentary service that provides fans a free way to watch matches from the Marsh One-Day Cup.
Fans shouldn't get too far ahead of themselves as cricket.com.au will only have nine matches and the service isn't all that user-friendly. Most importantly matches can only be streamed via a laptop or desktop.
