Meg Lanning's women have lived up to the billing as pre-tournament favourites, annihilating almost everyone in their path. Only England have given them a real game, coming within 12 runs of victory in a gripping encounter on the opening weekend of the tournament.

Rachael Haynes and her skipper did most of the damage as the Aussies piled up 310, but England came within a whisker of pulling off a magnificent chase, thanks in part to a heroic effort from Nat Sciver.

Heather Knight has done a tremendous job with turning England's fortunes around, especially after the flood of ridicule that followed their three opening defeats, and they've always got a chance with Sophie Ecclestone, the tournament's leading wicket-taker who bagged a semi-final six-for. 

Many of the best players in the game will be matching wits as the tournament reaches its finale, and you can follow our guide below to tune into a 2022 Women's World Cup Final live stream and watch Australia vs England from anywhere.

How to watch Australia vs England cricket outside your country

Below we've got you covered with your official broadcasting options for major cricket loving countries (and the US!), but if you're outside your country of residence - whether that's the UK, India or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the cricket via your local broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.
