Two Cricket Albury-Wodonga stars will contest the Australian Country Cricket Championships final with Victoria at Toowoomba on Saturday.
Tallangatta all-rounder Fraser Ellis and Wodonga co-coach Jack Craig have impressed throughout the week and are now just a win away from ultimate success.
A hard-fought 24-run victory against NSW in their final pool match on Friday allowed Victoria to finish top of the table and book a grand final berth against Western Australia.
Craig made a quickfire 15 off 11 balls as Victoria reached an imposing 6-290 from its 50 overs.
He then backed it up with the ball, claiming 2-46 from 10 overs as NSW finished on 7-266.
