CRICKET: Another chapter in the rivalry between the Canaga and Miles cricket teams will unfold this weekend as they vie for the Brian Littleproud Shield.

And both teams are looking forward to the day.

John Guymer, standing in for injured Miles captain Tim Perkins, said throughout the early to mid-'90s Canaga and Miles played in a number of grand finals and he was looking forward to the challenge.

Miles hopes to make this its fourth grand final victory in a row after finishing the season as minor premiers, taking out the Bernie Boshammer Shield.

However, their rivals are not going to make it easy.

Overcoming a lack of numbers early in the season, Canaga captain Michael Wostear said his team had fought hard to earn its place in the final and would be bringing their A-game on the day.

Canaga overcame Brigalow in the semi-finals and has previously beaten Miles, setting the scene for an exciting tussle on Saturday.

"We're all relatively excited,” Wostear said.

"We're just happy we made it. At the start of the season we sat down and said we'd like to make the finals and we've just tried to achieve it.

"We've all worked hard in our areas of the game.”

Guymer acknowledged the Miles batsmen would have their work cut out for them, with Canaga having the "best opening attack in the competition with Wostear and Caleb Hartwig”.

"They're both quality bowlers, so we'll have to watch them and see them off and see how we go.”

But regardless of how enthusiastic the teams are, it will be the pitch and weather that ultimately determines whether or not the game goes ahead.

The grand final is at the Chinchilla Recreation Grounds from 10am on Saturday.
