Thirteen matches featuring 18 clubs will be played as teams jockey for positions across the two conferences on a busy day of Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup action on Sunday.
All but two of the 20 McDonald's Men's NSW Premier Cricket clubs are involved in morning and/or afternoon matches in a crucial day for those jostling for quarter-final berths.
Northern District top the Sydney Thunder Conference but have played an extra game, while Randwick-Petersham head the Sydney Sixers Conference.
UTS North Sydney beat both UNSW and the rain to record a vital victory in the Sydney Sixers Conference last Sunday and are desperate to build on that momentum when they take on Mosman and Gordon in a double-header at Bon Andrews Oval.
"You can't afford to lose too many games in this competition if you're to reach the finals, so last week was a big result for us," Bears skipper Justin Avendano said.
"We want to do well in all three forms this season and this (the Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup) is a big part of it.
"Hopefully we can build on that win."
Sydney University made the Kingsgrove Cup final in 2018/19, going down to the Steve Smith-led Sutherland side in the decider.
Last season they were well off the pace, failing to make the play-offs.
This year's campaign started with a super over loss to Parramatta, making Sunday's Sydney Thunder Conference showdown with Hawkesbury almost a must-win game.
"We need to win this one to stay in the hunt," stand-in captain Tim Cummins declared.
"We haven’t gone as well in the T20s as we have in the one-day and two-day comps and that's something we want to change.
"Traditionally we've played finals in all three formats but not last season in this format.
"You've got to win the majority of your games to get through so we are really keen to do well in this one."
