It's a daunting task for Kinross but opening bat Charlie Tink is excited for the looming two-game test against Orange City.
After squaring off with the Warriors on Friday night in the T20 Royal Hotel Cup semi-final, the students will do battle with the defending Bathurst Orange Inter District premiers again, this time at Riawena Oval on Saturday.
And even though the men in black have had success in the short-form game, they'll be looking for their first BOIDC win and it comes against the best side in the competition.
"City offers a lot of depth," Tink said.
"They're top of the second-grade ladder as well so there's a lot of talent there. They have those strong players in Blake (Weymouth), Harry (McGregor) but there's also a lot of support as well... that's what makes them a good team."
Respecting your opposition is important but Tink doesn't want to be too defensive with the bat in-hand and knows his side will need to crack 200 runs if it wants a shot on Saturday.
"It's a quick outfield at Riawena so I think if we can get that 200-210 mark we'll have a shot," he said.
"Our bowling has been our strength this year we're looking to post a good score."
A lot of the scoring rests on the shoulders of Tink and the 15-year-old understands the responsibility he has at the top of the order and wants to do everything he can to help his mates out.
We're looking to build towards a better side and hopefully next season, push towards a finals spot.Charlie Tink.
"I just want to score some more runs to the team and contribute to us winning a few more games," he said.
While that maiden victory this summer hasn't arrived yet, Tink is optimistic the side isn't too far away from that breakthrough - if not this year, next season.
"We only lose three players next year so a lot of us are working towards that," he said.
"We're looking to build towards a better side and hopefully next season, push towards a finals spot."
Regardless of what happens on Saturday and for the rest of the year, Tink has lapped up this experience in 2020-21 as its the Dubbo native's first taste of top-flight cricket.
"This is my first year in first grade," he said.
"It's been a great learning curve for me. It's not like junior cricket where you get two loose balls an over... it's just constant pressure.
"There's more intensity but I enjoy that as well.
