Anything can happen in T20 cricket.
That's skipper Ed Morrish's concern ahead of Orange City's Royal Hotel Cup semi-finals clash against Kinross on Friday night, a game that has do-or-die implications for both sides.
While Kinross hasn't fared well in the Bathurst Orange Inter District competition, the students are 1-1 in the short-form game as they've saved their best for these fixtures.
Meanwhile, the Warriors sit atop the first-grade table but are bringing a lot of motivation into the T20 playoffs having not tasted Royal Hotel Cup glory since 2012-13.
"Personally, I care a lot," Morrish said.
"I'm sick of losing this competition. As a team, we all want to win it."
Wade Park will be the destination for this postseason clash and the Warriors will be hampered for it.
Harry McGregor, Blake Weymouth and Jarryd Seib are among the missing men for City, leaving others with an increased responsibility.
And for Morrish, it wouldn't matter if he had a full-strength side, he'd still be harping on a focused approach ahead of this one.
"Every game we play, I take it 100 percent seriously... I don't care who we play," he said.
"If you don't take someone seriously, you'll lose. It's a finals game and anything can happen."
According to the captain, 150-160 is about what they'd be looking to score if they have a bat first. "That would be about par for Wade Park but we've got to make sure where out trying to win the game and not going into our shell," he said.
"These games eb and flow so quickly... you can be going well for 17 overs and the other side can win the game in three overs.
"Fielding's obviously a big thing for us... we've got to take our catches. That's under 10s stuff."
As for Kinross, the status of key bat James Larkin will go along way to determining the outcome of the game as he's been immense for them whenever he's played in 2020-21.
Mac Webster is also a key man for the students as he opened with 44 runs in their most recent T20 victory over Lithgow. Both men were dominant on both sides of the ball in that clash as they also took a combined seven wickets.
Another Orange side will take the field seven days after the Warriors-Kinross game as Cavaliers will look to keep their title defence alive with a tricky clash against St Pat's Old Boys at Wade Park.
The Bathurst-based side most recently tasted success against the Cavs in the BOIDC.
The game will get underway at Wade Park on Friday night. First ball is 6.30pm.
