How to watch every cricket world cup 2015 match live online free ?
Because of the time difference it will be a headache for many cricket fans to follow world cup matches live on tv because of either work, school or other commitments. But we are living in the age of smart phones and fast internet available almost everywhere so by using some of the “dedicated streaming sites” you can watch every match live when ever and where you want absolutely free. All you need is a decent internet connection a computer sytem or smart phone.
Indian sports channel StarSports will be broadcasting most of the games live online as well through live streaming on their official website, take a look at this site and bookmark it (http://www.starsports.com/).
Than there are plenty of other streaming sites which you can use to watch the games live here are a few which always have decent streams. (quality is a bit compromised but hey somthing is better than nothing)
- Wiziwig(dot)tv – bible of sports streaming, they will have plenty of streaming links for every match.
- cricfree(dot)tv – another dedicated streaming service, they have good and decent streams for all sports. I talk to the admin of the site and he told me that there will be 4-5 working streaming links for every match during world cup.
- totalsportek.com – yeah thats right, unlike other streaming sites we dont host any stream but we will be providing links to either external sites with best possible streams or embed on our site.
