Forget the IPL (at least until next spring): the original T20 cricket tournament is reaching its thrilling climax. The Vitality Blast 2018 - formerly the Natwest t20 Blast - has its Finals Day on 15 September, and it should be a cracker.
In this article we explain how to watch the Vitality Blast T20 cricket live on TV (and on free highlights), how to listen on the radio and how to follow the scores online, as well as listing upcoming fixtures.
By our count 151 matches were scheduled for this year's Blast, and 148 have been completed. All that remains is Finals Day, which crams in the final three fixtures.
On 15 Sept the four remaining teams will play two semi-finals and a final.
- 15 Sep, 11am: Semi-final 1 (Worcestershire Rapids vs Lancashire Lightning)
- 15 Sep, 2.30pm: Semi-final 2 (Sussex Sharks vs Somerset)
- 15 Sep, 6.45pm: Final
All three matches will be shown live on Sky Sports Cricket.
How to watch live on Sky Sports
Assuming you don't want to get down the ground and watch in person, the way to watch a Vitality Blast T20 cricket game live is on Sky Sports, which has the rights.
Instead of signing up for a Sky subscription, you can buy a pay-as-you-go Now TV pass, which gives you a day, week or month of Sky Sports coverage for a fixed payment.
Watching with a VPN
If you're a Sky or Now TV subscriber and would like to watch the matches on your holidays abroad, you need to be thinking about a VPN, which lets you 'browse from the UK' even when you're not here.
