A grand-final berth will be on the line as Tasmania faces Western Australia in its last one-day cup match on Thursday.
Both sides require a bonus-point victory to have a chance of knocking Queensland out of second position, qualifying to face New South Wales in the grand final at Bankstown Oval on Sunday.
The Tigers come into the clash full of confidence after finishing their Sheffield Shield season on a high, defeating Western Australia by 175 runs in a match which was described by paceman Sam Rainbird as "a complete performance".
"Losing the toss, they sent us in and to get 500 when we were 3-60 at lunch, it could have gone either way," he said.
"But then Jake Doran and Wadey batted beautifully on day one and Beau [Webster] on day two to get us to 500."
Shifting his focus to the all-important one-day showdown, Rainbird predicted a fast, action-packed clash between the two.

"It could be a pretty interesting game really," he said.
"There will be ball flying around a bit and there will be a few wickets.
"I think it will be a pretty quick one to be honest because one team or the other team will be going pretty hard."
The Tigers dropped their first game of the one-day cup to Queensland before making the most of their opportunities against cellar-dwellers Victoria and South Australia, taking a double-bonus-point victory out of the latter.
They lost their most recent white-ball clash by three wickets to grand finalists NSW, courtesy of a returning David Warner century, but exacted revenge on the Blues in their Sheffield Shield clash later that week.
Mowbray off-spinner Jarrod Freeman has returned to the one-day squad following his omission for the NSW match-up, and will be joined by Mitch Owen and fellow Cricket North alumni Alex Pyecroft.
Previous squad members Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis, Mac Wright and Peter Siddle will all miss through different reasons as Western Australian border restrictions ruled out former Test star Siddle.
