Second chances have come and gone this Alice Springs Cricket Association season with teams now preparing to win or go home.

The 2020/21 finals series kicks off on Saturday afternoon with teams across all grades desperate to keep their premiership dreams alive.

In the A Grade competition, a mouth-watering clash between West and Complete Constructions Cricket Club will decide who moves on to the big dance next week.

In a battle between the competition heavyweights and the fast risers, both sides will be confident of assuring their place in the grand final.

West have won the past two one day premierships and will head into the fixture as favourites, arguably boasting the most complete side in the competition.

Led by skipper Patrick Hannigan, the Bloods have potential matchwinners across their entire line up including multi-time league MVP Jayden Dick and fast bowling sensation Samindra Madushan.

CCCC however will head into the semi final without any fear having come off a thumping victory over a depleted West just two weeks ago.

CCCC cost West top spot on the competition ladder, defeating the Bloods by a whopping 80 runs behind an impressive 83 off just 73 balls by Hasnain Zaidi.

West and CCCC will meet in the A Grade semi final on Saturday afternoon at Albrecht Oval beginning from 3pm.

The B Grade semi final will also feature West who will take on Solergy Alice Tigers for the right to move into the grand final. 

With both sides boasting imposing batting line-ups, spectators can expect a high scoring and entertaining affair with boundary ropes being peppered consistently.

The last matchup between the two sides happened all the way back in November, with West winning however both teams will pay little attention to that result.

The winner will move on and face Federal Asbuild in the grand final, who finished top of the table.

The B Grade semi final will be played at Jim McConville Oval from 12.30pm on Saturday.

In the C Grade semi final, Complete Constructions Cricket Club and Solergy Alice Tigers will hope to keep their respective seasons alive when they clash on Saturday.

Tigers won the only meeting between the two sides in the one day competition this season, defeating CCCC by seven wickets back in February.

Jitender Singh was the star of that fixture, compiling a swashbuckling 53* from just 50 balls to guide his side home.

The C Grade semi final will be played on Saturday afternoon at Flynn Reserve from 1pm.
