It's a format that Ed Morrish admits isn't his side's specialty but defending premiers Orange City will look to transition into one-day Bathurst Orange Inter District Cricket play for the next three games, starting on Saturday with a clash against Centrals at Wade Park.
The Warriors finished the first half of the season like a house on fire and went into the Christmas break on top of the table.
Now, Morrish wants his men to continue their winnings ways but knows they won't get there by being tentative with the bat.
The skipper has called on his side to become more urgent when at the crease, whether it be running harder between the wickets or just looking to take on the boundary more often.
"We need to bat with a bit more intent," Morrish said.
"There were a few times recently where we posted 200 but we were probably in a position to post 230 or 250.
"We need to be turning those ones into twos... singles and twos are just as important as boundaries are. We don't play much one-day cricket so we're always learning how to improve."
City will be bolstered by the form of Ben Schofield, Harry McGregor and Blake Weymouth as the trio just returned from Western Zone duties where they all played some excellent cricket.
"I think it's especially good for Blakey (Weymouth)," he said.
"He kept getting off to big starts and not going on with them. It was good to see him go really well at Western.
"H (McGregor) has ben bowling outstanding in the last couple of games. I expect all of them to come back and just keep going."
An interesting narrative heading into the second half of the season is the wickets battle between McGregor and Morrish as the two are competing with each other for most BOIDC scalps.
"I'm looking to keep my perfect record against him," Morrish said.
"I'm the alpha... he's got to knock me off."
All jokes aside, Morrish knows Centrals aren't a squad to be overlooked, especially with the likes of Fletcher Rose running around.
"They base a lot of what they do around him," Morrish said.
"He'll open the bowling and bat three or four so we've got to be mindful of him."
"Zac Reimer is always there abouts with the ball as well."
As for the other Orange teams, Cavaliers will have a tough task when they travel to Morse Park to take on St Pat's Old Boys.
Kinross will travel to Bathurst Sportsground to take on Centennials Bulls, while CYMS has a clash at George Park with Bathurst City.
For the next three weeks, all sides will play one-day cricket.
All round eight contests are set to get underway at 1pm.
