We all remember what a rough summer for 2021 was for Australian cricket. The Aussies disappointing series loss against the Indians has left some of us reminiscing about the good old days of Hayden and Langer, Hussey and Pup, and the hip and shoulder king himself, Roy Symonds. Luckily the Big Bash League in its tenth season has started just in time to make us forget the test series ever happened. So were swapping the red ball game for something a little more high energy. Our pub finder shows you the best places to watch near you. No more calling pubs and asking if the game will be on the big screen, or if the volume will be turned up.

What do we need to say about the Pineapple. If you haven't stepped through the doors at this epic establishment yet, may we suggest you put it on your bucket list ASAP. An institution in Brisbane for live sports and good times, this is your place to be for the BBL finals

Weird name, but a fantastic pub. The Bakers arms is the perfect pub for all to watch the BBL over a cold ale. Ample screens, exceptional food and the choice of indoor or outdoor dining will have you coming back again and again
