The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup—being hosted by the West Indies and the United States—runs through June. If you’re a cricket fan, it’s undeniable popcorn entertainment. Twenty teams are competing to lift the trophy, from heavyweights India to defending champions England. Sadly, in all the major cricket-loving markets, the 2024 T20 World Cup is behind a paywall. (I’ve written a separate guide that runs through the paid choices.) There are no free-to-air options. But if you’re willing to work a bit more (or are lucky enough), you can watch every match from the T20 World Cup for free. So, how do you go about it?
