The first local derby of The Hundred sees the two London-based teams battle it out for bragging rights in the capital, the Invincibles making the short trip up from Kennington to the Home of Cricket at Lord’s. Read on to discover how to watch The Hundred cricket online and get a London Spirit vs Oval Invincibles live stream no matter where in the world you are – including ways to see it absolutely FREE.
This tournament and these teams may be brand spanking new, but make no mistake, they’re already arch-rivals.
There are some BIG personalities in the home camp, which is led by head coach Shane Warne and skipper Eoin Morgan. If that sounds a little intense, there’s also the loveable Geordie Mark Wood to mellow things out.
The Spirit aren’t necessarily amongst the favourites for The Hundred, but could they thrive without that weight of expectation?
Their opponents from the other side of town have been much more hotly tipped, and have a plethora of options either side of the ball. Saqib Mahmood, Sunil Narine and Sandeep Lamichhane are three of the hottest bowlers out there right now, while Jason Roy and Sams Billings and Curran will surely be destructive with the bat.

How to watch a London Spirit vs Oval Invincibles live stream from outside your country
If you’re abroad during The Hundred, you’ll likely find you’re unable to access your domestic cricket coverage like you would at home. This isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.
Fortunately, there’s a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you swerve around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe trot and still access your preferred London Spirit vs Oval Invincibles live stream. It’s a very affordable workaround and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
