New Zealand vs Australia T20i live stream

Start time: 6am GMT / 5pm AEDT / 7pm NZDT

Venue: Wellington Regional Stadium, Wellington, NZ

US stream : ESPN+ ($4.99/month)

UK stream: BT Sport (£25/month)

The first two matches of this series took place in Christchurch and Dunedin, both of which turned out to be happy hunting grounds for New Zealand. The Kiwis won the first by 53 runs and the second by 4 runs, and are now firmly in the driving seat. But if Australia win all three remaining matches, they could still snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

The action moves to Wellington this week for the 3rd and 4th matches, which will now be played behind closed doors due to covid-19 restrictions. The weather is forecast to be mostly cloudy, with a chance of rain early in the day and a dry afternoon. 

In other words, the battle between New Zealand’s Kane Williamson and Australia’s Aaron Finch is officially on! With New Zealand spinners Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner in top form, and Australia keen to mount a comeback ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup, this match is shaping up nicely.

Read on below to find out how you can catch every second of the third New Zealand vs Australia T20I, wherever you are in the world. The action begins at 6am UK time.

New Zealand vs Australia live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant T20I cricket rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
