A number of teams will be playing for survival when the Kingsgrove Sports Twenty20 Cup continues with a busy schedule of matches on Sunday.

Poor starts and inclement weather have played havoc with several campaigns, leaving a host of sides walking the tightrope.

Many of the weekend's 12 games will take on do-or-die status.

The Sydney Thunder Conference is headed by Bankstown and Fairfield-Liverpool (both on 7 points), with Northern District and Parramatta rounding out the top four.

But those four teams have played one game – if not two – more than many of their rivals and could be threatened by sides just outside the quarter-final slots.

Hawkesbury, Blacktown Mounties and Wests have played just two matches each and could make great strides up the table on Sunday.

Blacktown and Wests are both involved in double headers, while the Hawks have an afternoon appointment with Sydney Uni.

Wests haven’t made the T20 finals since the 2012/13 season.

"That's a long wait and something we want to turn around," captain Josh Clarke said.

"We've only played two games and we're not that far off the pace, so two wins on Sunday will push us right up there.

"It's a massive weekend of white ball cricket for us."   

The Sydney Sixers Conference is extremely tight, with just 0.5 of a competition point separating first from eighth.

Sydney, Manly-Warringah and Randwick-Petersham have played just two games apiece and appear the best placed to break into the top four.

The morning clash between equal conference leaders Gordon and Sutherland at Chatswood Oval is the stand-out game.

Table leaders Eastern Suburbs take on defending champions Sydney in another attractive match-up.
