Top spot on the division one ladder is up for grabs when Spring Gully hosts Sedgwick in round seven of Emu Valley cricket on Saturday.
Sedgwick holds top spot on the table with six wins from as many matches.
Spring Gully, the reigning premier, has played one extra match and sit on the same points as the Rams.
Spring Gully's only loss so far this season was a 60-run loss to Sedgwick in round three.
Rhys Webb aside, the Crows' batsmen failed to fire against Sedgwick in round three.
This time around the teams meet in a one-day encounter.
In two one-day matches this season the Crows are averaging 225 with the bat off 40 overs.
Sedgwick has only played one one-day fixture this season and the Rams belted the winless California Gully.
Third-placed Emu Creek should stay in touch with the top teams by defeating Maiden Gully.
Emu Creek has only had one defeat this season and it did hand Maiden Gully a 189-run thumping two rounds ago.
Former Eaglehawk star Jeremy Brown has been named for Emu Creek and, if he plays, he will cuase all sorts of headaches for the Maiden Gully attack.
Maiden Gully needs a lift from its batsmen.
The Lions highest score in two-day cricket this season is just 201 and they’ve been dismissed for less than 100 twice.
In the final game of round seven, Marong is at home to United.
If fifth-placed Marong is to be considered a genuine chance of leapfrogging Mandurang into fourth spot, then this game against United is one the Panthers should win.
United has shown flashes of good form, but overall the Tigers have lacked consistency with the bat and ball.
West Bendigo, Mandurang and California Gully have the bye this round.
They’ll return to action on January 12 in another round of one-day matches.
West Bendigo and Mandurang clash at Ken Wust Oval, Maiden Gully hosts California Gully and in the match of the round Sedgwick is at home to Emu Creek.
