MANDURANG will be batting to retain fourth position in the Emu Valley Cricket Association on Saturday.
And Marong will be bowling to take the Rangas’ top-four spot.
The Rangas and Panthers are locked in a crucial round 10 battle as both teams – along with United – jostle for the last spot in the finals.
Marong has a score of 9-220 to defend at home against Mandurang.
Should Mandurang chase its target down it will keep hold of fourth spot heading into the final two rounds.
However, a Marong win would elevate the fifth-placed Panthers into the top four as they pursue their first finals appearance since 2011-12.
• EVCA state of play:
Marong 9-220 v Mandurang
West Bendigo 148 v Maiden Gully 4-117
Sedgwick 209 v United
Emu Creek 7-438 v California Gully
One-day match last Sunday – Spring Gully 2-152 d West Bendigo 144
