Tallangatta will look to surprise juggernaut Lavington with a new game plan in Saturday's semi-final.
The Bushies edged into finals for the 11th successive season with a thrilling last-wicket win over New City, but will start rank outsiders to keep their season alive at the Panthers' home.
"The underdog role suits us fine, we've played that for a decade and had success," coach Matt Armstrong said.
"Finals is a different game and we have some plans for their play.
"We haven't shown those specific plans through the regular season, but we know it will require a perfect day's cricket to win."
The teams have met only once this season with Lavington posting a 90-run win in round three.
The Panthers' Nathan Brown and coach Sam O'Connor posted half-centuries, while Tallangatta's Sahib Malhotra scored 72 in the total of 157.
The star Indian import hasn't played since late last year.
