BITS player keen to get back into it against The Glen

CRICKET: He describes Jason Batchelor and Ky Hull as annoying and funny teammates respectively.

But all jokes aside, Ryan Finlay hopes he and the pair fire against The Glen in Saturday's second grand final at BITS Oval at 9.30am.

It's a must-win match after The Glen took out game one at Sun Valley Oval.

Finlay and Hull will be the key inclusions for Saturday's crunch final.

"We just need to stick to our game plan, stay alive in the field and turn up on the day," Finlay said in a simple message to his teammates.

One of Central Queensland's most promising young all-rounders, Finlay began the sport 10 years ago for BITS.

He is a strong advocate for the best-of-three series.

BITS need to win tomorrow to square the ledger and Finlay hopes it goes the distance.

"I think it's a really good concept and hopefully it will be a quality couple of games," he said.

If Finlay matches his best batting and bowling efforts, then BITS are every chance to cause an upset.

"My highest runs was 89 and best bowling was 4-17," he said.

Finlay looks up to captain Terry Sawyer and former A-grade gun Lucas Hall for inspiration. He also said Darren Box provided the entertainment with his "classic sledging and one-liners".

A shower or two and a possible storm is forecast for later on Saturday with a top of 29C.
