For well over a century, the Sheffield Shield has been the premier domestic cricket competition in Australia. It hasn't always been easy to tune in, but the announcement just prior to the 2020/21 season that Fox Cricket would be broadcasting it was great news for fans.
NSW are the most successful team in the tournament's history, winning 47 titles overall, well ahead of Victoria (32). The Blues are also the defending champions, awarded the Shield after last season was cancelled late on due to the coronavirus with NSW holding a commanding lead on the table.
There is no free-to-air TV coverage of the Sheffield Shield. But with Fox Cricket picking up the broadcast rights for this year's tournament, Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports are all options for catching some action out on the pitch. You can also stream it online on cricket.com.au.
Live stream Sheffield Shield on Kayo: Start your 14-day FREE trial now
Cricket.com.au is governing body Cricket Australia's official site. You can stream Shield matches via the website or the CA Live app for free by signing up. Some matches only had cameras at one end of the pitch in the opening round, which should be rectified for the second round. The streaming qualify is also below what you will see on Kayo Sports.
Kayo Sports is heaven for cricket fans. On top of offering the Sheffield Shield in HD, it also boasts every Australian Test, ODI and T20I. It also carries the exciting Indian Premier League, BBL and WBBL competitions.
It currently has a 14-day free trial, so you could check out some Shield action and so much more for zero cost. After that, Kayo costs $25 per month for the Basic option, where you can watch games on 2 screens or devices. The Premium option is $10 more per month and gives you 3 screens.
Kayo also has a number of special features, such as Kayo Minis, SplitView, where you can watch four sports at once, Interactive Stats and a Key Moments Timeline. All up, Kayo has access to more than 50 sports and we have put together a full review of the service for you.
The platform is compatible with Android, iOS, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Android TV and Samsung TV (2017 or later), Sony Bravia TVs, Mac and PC, PS4 and PS5, as well as Chromecast or AirPlay.
Foxtel Now is the pay TV giant's digital streaming service. You have to subscribe to the Essentials pack in addition to the Sport pack, which costs a total of $54 per month.
For those who prefer not to stream, the Sheffield Shield is available on Foxtel iQ. However, it is pricier than your streaming options. You're required to have the mandatory Foxtel Plus pack ($49/month) and then Sports on top ($25/month), so you'll be paying $74/month unless you sign up during a sale.
Speaking of sales, you'll be needing to hope you find one that includes free installation, otherwise that's another fee you'll need to consider.
The new season commenced on 10 October this year, with the first four rounds held in South Australia. Queensland are hosting NSW in this year's Shield final, starting on 15 April. There is also a bonus points system in place that means a draw is not enough this year for the home side to claim the Shield.
