The men's A, C and D grade and masters A and B grade teams will travel to Strathpine's indoor centre on Saturday for five action packed hours of cricket.

The A grade side enter the big dance in good form having lost just one game during the National Indoor Cricket League regular season to arch enemies Wynnum Seagulls.

They will also play off against the best club teams in the country next weekend at the national finals where $45,000 and bragging rights will go on the line.

Vipers A grade coach Stephen Mogg said his team would face stiff competition during this weekend's divisional final, with Melbourne Renegades Big Bash League spinner Cameron Boyce headlining a strong Strathpine Burras team.

"Basically it's about being very disciplined - that's the key," he said.

"Obviously in indoor you lose five runs for each wicket so when we're batting it's about not losing wickets and when we're bowling it's about discipline and bowling good lines and areas.

"At A grade level you don't get too many bowled and caught dismissals, you get a lot of run outs so we talk about bowling to our fields and our plans."

Mogg said the National Indoor Cricket League started by Cricket Australia three years ago had changed the cricketing landscape and boosted the sport's exposure.

"It's a fantastic initiative from Cricket Australia," he said.

"It helps promote what they call the fourth format of cricket, that being indoor cricket.

"Over the years a lot of teams have sat there and said 'our club team is better than yours'.

"Now there's a vehicle where if your team is good enough you can actually claim that title.

"Throughout Australia there are some BBL and WBBL stars that play in the NICL."

Mogg said he would look to senior players and top performers Jaimie Stuart and Josh Guy to deliver a premiership this weekend.
