It’s almost time for the biggest Cricket event of the year. We refer to the ICC Cricket World Cup which is due to be held this year. Building on its decade’s old tradition, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is scheduled to kick-off in May.
What makes ICC World Cup the biggest cricket event is the fact that it invites around two-dozen teams to compete against each other. The 12th ICC Cricket World Cup will feature ten teams. The teams will compete against each other in ODI (One Day International) format until they teams are eliminated from qualifying rounds, leaving us with only two teams that will compete for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 trophy in the final match.
And as you’d expect, the biggest cricket event will get prime coverage across sports channels. Never miss a single moment with our guide as we explain how to watch ICC Cricket World Cup on Kodi.

ICC Cricket World Cup is a tournament which happens only once in five years. So when it’s time for the grand event, almost every sports channel in the world gears up to give it prime coverage. You can expect to watch the entire tournament live on your national sports channel.
The official ICC Cricket World Cup website has compiled a complete list of broadcasters by region. The list is quite extensive, proving true to the significance of this upcoming event.

We suggest going with Sports365 first then fallback on SportsDevil in the event the former does not work. It’s important that you use VPN. Third-party add-ons rely on free streams available on the internet, including copyrighted ones. Exposing yourself to the ISP while you watch such copyrighted streams can get you into trouble.
Use FastestVPN to secure your internet activities and data with AES 256-bit encryption. It’s the highest form of encryption available commercially, and considered virtually impossible to crack.
