The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has been going on for nearly a month, and it has gathered ten of the best men’s national teams to play in England and Wales, the host countries of this year’s championship.
We are just halfway through the tournament, but we are already getting a good idea on who the prime candidates to continue to the knockout stages, as well as who are the players that are likely to be contenders for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards.
Avid cricket fans are probably well aware of the options they have to watch the matches online, but there might be some viewers who might not be able to enjoy this due to various reasons – for example, being abroad may prevent you from accessing your favorite streaming service.
July 14 is the date when we will know who will be crowned the best One Day International cricket champion. So far, hosts England appear to be one of the top contenders, as they have displayed a stellar performance throughout the whole tournament.
With players such as Jofra Archer and Joe Root, they are being given the best odds by betting websites, and so far they have not disappointed. Another prime candidate for the championship is India – with names such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah featured in their lineup, we can certainly expect to see some amazing games from them.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2018 champions, Australia, are also into the fray as they can once again count on previously banned David Warner and Steve Smith to boost their overall performance. Other teams to look out for are New Zealand and Bangladesh – Australia’s neighbors are topping the group at the moment and their performance is certainly a pleasant surprise that will make the competition even fiercer.
Accessing Geo-Blocked Streaming Services – Cricket World Cup
The summer months are a great time on vacation, and you certainly do not want to be caught in a situation where you are abroad, and you end up being unable to access your home country’s cricket streaming service. Many of these services tend to rely on geo-blocking, therefore making it impossible for devices from outside the country to access the service.
Many people in a situation like this may opt to rely on unreliable and poor quality pirated streams, but what if we told you that there is a much more convenient solution?
Thanks to VPN services, you can trick your home broadcaster into thinking that you are not outside of the country. You will be able to enjoy top quality stream playback and it is unlikely that there will be any connection issues due to the high-quality services that most VPN providers offer.
Another important thing to note about popular VPN services is that they are compatible with a broad range of devices – tablets, smartphones, game consoles, smart TVs, etc. But what service should you pick? Here are three of the most popular VPN providers in recent months:
- ExpressVPN – offers free trial as well as a money-back guarantee.
- NordVPN – widely advertised, and ranked as the top choice for media streaming.
- IPVanish – a less popular but worthwhile VPN service.
