Bathurst native Lisa Griffith could cap off the perfect debut season for Perth Scorchers, when her team takes on the Adelaide Strikers in the Women's Big Bash League final on Saturday night.
Griffith has played seven games for the table topping Scorchers, taking three wickets in that time.
Perth and Adelaide have met twice during the regular season, the Scorchers winning both matches, including a thrilling super over victory at Lilac Hill where Sophie Devine smashed two sixes to secure the win.
Strikers finished the regular season in fourth place but progressed to the final after defeating two time champions Brisbane Heat in the eliminator final before making light work of Melbourne Renegades in the challenger final to win by nine-wickets.
Perth possess the all-important home ground advantage for the final, with a big crowd expected to fill Optus Stadium.
Chloe Piparo, who has been one of the Scorchers best this season, believes the home crowd advantage will pay dividends for the minor premeirs.
"I think there will be a fair few Piparo's in the crowd," Piparo said, who's from Bunbury, almost 170 kilometres south of the Western Australian capital.
"We've got the luxury of being able to be at home in our own beds this week, preparing in Perth conditions."
Around 17,000 tickets have been sold to the Optus Stadium decider.

For Griffith, she's only arrived in Perth for this season, so she might be so acclimatised to the late spring WA weather as some of the locals.
Griffith previously played for the Sydney Sixers for the 2020-21 season, having made the move from cross-town rivals Sydney Thunder.
Griffith last played locally in the Bathurst Orange Inter District Cricket for Centennials Bulls back on February 6.
She took 3-21 off 21 overs in the first day of play for Bulls in it's match against eventual minor premiers St Pat's Old Boys.
The second day of play was washed-out, meaning the match finished in a draw.
Perth has not won the Women's Big Bash League since the 2017-18 season, with Adelaide having won the title as recently as the 2019-20 season.
Scorchers will be headlined by captain Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney, who were both named in the Women's Big Bash League Team of the Season.
Saturday night's final at Optus Stadium will get underway from 7.10pm AEST and 4.10pm Western Australia time.
