Purists may love the Test format but the IPL is the biggest and richest cricket competition in the world, with thrilling games, fanatical crowds and huge worldwide TV audiences. If you’d like to see what the fuss is all about, this is the article for you.

Here’s how to watch every IPL 2018 cricket match live on TV or online.

When does the IPL start?

On Saturday 7 April, when defending champions Mumbai Indians host Chennai Super Kings at their superbly named Wankhede Stadium. The competition then carries on for six weeks with games every day until 22 May, when the top 4 teams begin the qualification process for the final, on 27 May.

How to watch the IPL 2018: Mumbai vs Chennai

How can I watch the IPL on TV?

That all depends on where you live: the games will be shown on Sky in the UK, Willow in the US and Star Sports in India, as outlined below.

Using a VPN

Before we get on to each country’s broadcast schedule, note that it is possible to access overseas coverage (which may be a better deal for you) if you use a VPN. We’ve rounded up the best VPN deals for PC and Mac, but you won’t go far wrong if you pick NordVPN.

Open the VPN, choose which country to browse from, and access that country’s coverage online.

UK

How to watch IPL 2018: Sky Sports Cricket

Sky has the rights to IPL broadcasts in the UK. It will be showing all 60 matches on its Sky Sports Cricket channel, which Sky subscribers will find on channel 404. Some games will also be available on Sky Sports Main Event and/or Sky Sports Mix.

If you’re new to Sky you can purchase Sky from £20 per month and then an extra £18 for Sky Sports. If you’re an existing Sky customer and want to add Sky Sports to your package it costs from £18 per month.

How to watch IPL 2018: Now TV

You don’t necessarily need to be a Sky subscriber to get Sky Sports Cricket, however. If you don’t want to commit to a long-term contract, Now TV’s pay-as-you-go Sky Sports Pass is a better option: it lets you pay for a day, week or month of Sky Sports (including the non-cricket channels – so you can watch lesser sports too).

A day pass costs £7.99. It lasts precisely 24 hours from purchase, so think hard about when to activate it: choose one of the days with two IPL matches, or the day before one of them so you can catch the 3.30pm match and still have access for the 11.30am one the next day.

A week pass costs £12.99, while the month pass usually costs £33.99 and rolls on to the next month unless you cancel it, but at time of writing there’s a deal that gets you the month pass for £20 provided you commit to two months at that price… and again it will auto-renew.

US

In the US you can watch the IPL on the dedicated cricket channel Willow. Willow is a cable channel available via various providers including Comcast and the satellite provider DISH Network, and streams games live (to fee payers) at Willow.tv.

The channel has a dedicated iOS app and another for the Apple TV. There’s also an Android app.

India

In India the games will be shown on Star Sports, a network owned by 21st Century Fox. Star shows highlights on the website of Hotstar, its parent network, but you will have to use a VPN to access these outside India.

Where is the best place to check IPL scores online?

Probably ESPNcricinfo, which does ball-by-ball scoring for almost every game you can think of, and live commentary for all the big ones (which the IPL should qualify as). The site also has an excellent free app for iOS and we imagine the Android one is decent, too.

Which is the best team?

Kolkata Knight Riders play in purple, share a name with a 1980s David Hasselhoff TV show and open the batting with a mystery spinner who once scored a fifty off 15 balls. We trust that answers your question.

And which team has the most English players?

Rajasthan Royals. Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer (who was born in Barbados but will qualify for England in 2022) are all tipped for big success and decent bets to make the starting 11. Rajasthan’s first game is on Monday 9 April against Sunrisers Hyderabad (who have Alex Hales and Chris Jordan in their squad).

There are plenty of other England players involved in the competition, but we expect most to play relatively minor roles. Chris Woakes ought to do well at RCB, though.
