After a month of glorious cricket from the planet's elite women players, we've reached the final of the 2022 Women's Cricket World Cup. Down to the awesome Australia and reigning champions England, there's one final opportunity for big sixes, flying bails and a dramatic last-over finish. So strap yourself in and read on as we explain how to watch a 2022 Women's World Cup live stream online from anywhere.
Can the English really stop the formidable Southern Stars? Six-time champions Australia entered the 2022 tournament as overwhelming favorites once again and have been in absolutely dominating form, winning all seven of their group matches.
England started the tournament with consecutive losses, but have turned things around and destroyed an impressive South Africa team in the semi-finals. Can they produce a miracle and win the whole thing against all the odds?
The White Ferns' - this year's hosts - solitary ODI World Cup triumph came in 2000, but were unable to take advantage of their home strips in New Zealand. They crashed out in the group stages alongside the much-fancied India.
Ready to watch the climax of this fantastic tournament? Follow our guide for all you need to know to find a 2022 Women's World Cup live stream and watch every game from anywhere.

How to watch World Cup 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 India, the UK 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.
