The RSL-Whitney Cup's first limited overs final is in doubt with rain forecast for Sunday.
There's a strong chance of 10-20mm on Sunday, meaning a ball may not be bowled in the decider between Macquarie and CYMS at No. 2 Oval.
But Dubbo District Cricket Association president Jeff Shanks confirmed on Friday the match would be rescheduled in the event of a washout.
The reserve date is likely to be February 23, with Dubbo's representative side already locked in to play the Western Premier League final next Sunday.
One of the many benefits of having the one-day final played mid-season, according to Shanks, was it gave plenty of time to replay the match in the event of any abandonment.
If play does go ahead this weekend, the Macquarie and CYMS players will be spending plenty of time together.
As well as Sunday's battle for silverware, the pair meet on Saturday during the return of two-day cricket.
While two-day cricket provides the opportunity to earn big points in the battle for the minor premiership, Sunday offers the chance for a trophy.
And that's something both sides will be craving.
Macquarie is in the hunt for unprecedented treble after claiming the McDonald's Megahit title in dramatic circumstances last week.
The Blues edged out Newtown in that game, are already in the one-day final, and currently sit top of the RSL-Whitney Cup ladder heading into the final three rounds.
While the Blues are looking to add to their trophy collection, the Cougars are determined to end their title drought.
Finals games have been few and far between for CYMS during the past decade but the Cougars have slowly been reestablishing themselves in more recent times.
There have been semi-final appearances in the past two Megahit and Whitney Cup competitions and while their form has been a little patchy in recent matches, they still did enough to qualify for Sunday's decider.
Both will look to build some momentum on day one of their two-day game on Saturday before Sunday's limited overs final.
Elsewhere on Saturday, both Colts and Newtown have a chance to make ground on the top two.
With one of the top two bound to suffer defeat this round, sides three and four have plenty of motivation.
Thurd-placed Colts takes on a South Dubbo side coming off a morale-boosting win over an under strength CYMS while Newtown meets Rugby.
Colts is just six points behind CYMS while the Tigers are a further four points back in fourth.
All games start at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday's final also begins at the same time.
