Big Bash Cricket
The Big Bash League is a great night out for the family. The game is considerably shorter than traditional cricket matches and they've added fireworks, music, mascots, cheerleaders, drummers, flares, half time entertainment and crowd involvement. I'll admit it, I'm not usually a cricket fan but this league has won me over!
Tickets start at $20 for adults and $8 for kids so it's cheaper than going to the movies.
1. If you are parking at the MCG ground it's $10 and they accept cash only.
2. Arrive early to make the most of the entertainment outside the ground, it varies match to match but there's always a jumping castle and a few other things.
3. The cafes are much quieter on the upper levels.
4. Sunset is spectacular from the top deck. Head up at about 8.30pm to watch the sky.
