Sunday’s Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup feature match is St George vs Sutherland, which will become the first multi-camera broadcast of Premier Cricket to be streamed live by the Daily Telegraph.

Recent Test and current NSW Blues players Kurtis Paterson and Trent Copeland will feature for St George in the 2.30pm match at Hurstville Oval.

The production by InteractSport will include commentary, instant replays and full match graphics.

For many teams it will be moving day in the Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup when all 20 Premier Cricket clubs go at it in the competition's penultimate round.

Top four spots in both the Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers conferences sit on a knife edge but the picture will be a lot clearer once a bumper 10-game schedule is completed.

Fairfield-Liverpool and Bankstown (both 10 points) top the Sydney Thunder conference but both sides have played at least one – if not two – more games than their rivals.

Northern District and Parramatta make up the four but have fifth placed Hawkesbury ready to pounce.

Hawkesbury has a game or two in hand on those above them and could climb into the four if they knock over Fairfield-Liverpool at Rosedale Oval.

NDs welcome back international T20 gun for hire, Chris Green, for the clash with Western Suburbs at Mark Taylor Oval, while 10 NSW-contracted players have been given permission to play after receiving medical clearances following their recent visit to Adelaide.

Sydney is in a familiar position at the top of the Sydney Sixers conference after compiling three wins and a draw.

The defending champions will make a final down payment on a finals berth by knocking over North Sydney at compact Tunks Park.

Not that veteran Sydney keeper-batsman Dan Smith is taking anything for granted.

"I'm not really one to be studying MyCricket so don't tend to know exactly where we are on the table, but I know if we don't get the next two games right we could be sitting back watching other teams run around in the finals," he said  

"T20 cricket is so fickle that it only takes a team to have a day out and suddenly the competition table doesn't count for much.

"We want to defend the title but I wouldn't say it's created any extra pressure.

"Our guys have a pretty simple game plan and so far we've been able to execute it."

There is only three competition points separating fourth from ninth in the Sixers conference, placing even greater emphasis on this round of matches.

The final standings in both conferences will be decided after the last round on November 29.
