Railways will be chasing more success in the Twenty20 format in a bid to revive their Albany and Districts Cricket Association season.

Rounds 10, 11 and 12 of the regular ADCA A-grade season will double as rounds two, three and four of the T20 competition to be played this weekend.

A win in the T20 competition is worth three points in the regular A-grade standings, compared with the six points on offer for a regular one-day victory.

The Tigers, who have won the past seven A-grade premierships, were comfortable 60-run winners in their first T20 match over Collingwood Park before cruising to an eight-wicket win against Royals in their second game to sit at the top of the T20 standings ahead of the final three rounds.

They welcomed Brendan Crudeli and Dylan Holt back into their side, and both played pivotal roles in the first two rounds.

The Tigers will face Many-peaks at Turf North in round 10 on Saturday before having a bye in round 11 and then finishing with a crucial clash against the formidable Mt Barker on Sunday morning.

A win in one of their final two games will all but secure the Tigers a place in Sunday’s T20 decider.

The grand final will not be played for premiership points and starts at 2pm between the two highest-ranked T20 teams.

The Tigers sit at the bottom of the regular season standings but are only two points adrift of third spot as they look to build confidence into the second half of the season.

The Bulls, who are unbeaten overall this season, have only played one T20 fixture for a victory while the Lions are the other team on the board in the shortened format.

Park are winless from two T20 matches and Peaks have lost their sole fixture heading into the final three rounds.

Royals have won one game in the T20 competition so far.
