It is worth checking you are not breaking any broadcasting rights or laws before using these sites. The quality is not always perfect, but it is free so you can’t really complain! Most sites will bring up a 30 second advert before the cricket comes on and it can often take a while for the match load so just be patient. It is also better if you don’t have a really old or slow computer.
It can be a bit down to pot luck with the free sites whether they will work - and some come with so many pop ups that it’s just not worth it. If you would prefer to pay a small fee for a more reliable service check out www.action8cricket.com
It is definitely easier to watch the highlights as there are more reliable websites offering this service, like YouTube or www.freecrickethighlights.com
It can be so expensive to pay for Sky Sports etc just to be able to watch cricket - and the beauty of these sites is you can still watch it in the comfort of your own home - with a brew or beer in hand. It’s also really handy if the games are on at an unsociable hour because you can watch them while in bed from your laptop and don’t need to disturb anyone else.
Free online cricket sites often close and new ones launched so the best way to keep up to speed on what’s available is to log onto some of the online forums and message boards. This article also has some helpful comments below www.axleration.com/5-sites-to-watch-icc-cricket-world-cup-20
