Today's the day! After 47 matches, 353 sixes and 656 wickets, we've finally made it – or, rather, England and New Zealand have made it – to the 2019 Cricket World Cup final. England have the momentum, but New Zealand had a morale-boosting win over India in the semi-finals. It's a tough one to call, but the only thing we can be absolutely certain of is where to get yourself a FREE England vs New Zealand cricket live stream.
England went into their own World Cup as heavy favourites, but looked down and out after losses to Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the group stage. They somehow found a way through to the knockouts where they destroyed Australia in a victory that will also give them a boost before the forthcoming Ashes series. They've had great performers across the board with Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and captain Eoin Morgan performing heroics with the bat and Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer starring with the ball. Can they eke out just one more win and bring cricket home?
Looking to stop them is a very impressive New Zealand side. They also had their struggles with three consecutive losses, but came through it all to beat India in a thriller over two days. Kane Williamson is their totemic captain on whom the team has come to rely. But Trent Boult is one of the best ODI bowlers out there and if Martin Guptill can come to the party, buoyed by his semi-final winning run out, then the Kiwis could very well lift their first ever Cricket World Cup.
The final is all set to start at the home of cricket – Lord's – at 10.30am BST. Read on to discover how to get an England vs New Zealand live stream for free – even if you happen to be out of the UK.

How to live stream the 2019 Cricket World Cup final from anywhere else in the world
Unfortunately, if you're outside the UK this weekend and try to watch that Channel 4 coverage, we expect that you'll be out of luck as it will inevitably be geo-blocked. That means you can't watch it outside of the home country due to rights reasons. But there's a handy little trick you can use to get around that, using a Virtual Private Network.
More commonly known as a VPN (you've probably already heard of them), the software allows you to virtually change your IP address to a server in another country so you appear to be in a completely different location. It's encrypted, making it also a safer way to navigate the web. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend ExpressVPN as the best option currently available.
ExpressVPN has the benefit of a 30-day money back guarantee and is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on loads of devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc and you'll also get 3 months FREE if you sign up to an annual plan.
Once it's been downloaded and installed, open the app and select a UK server location (it's super easy) and then head over to Channel 4's website from 10.30am BST / 9.30pm NZST / 11.30am CET / 5.30am ET / 2.30am PT / 7.30pm AEST in time to live stream the start of the match.
