Koroit playing-coach Brendan Gherashe is hoping his side can make a smooth transition to two-day cricket.
The sixth-placed Saints face bottom-ranked Wesley-CBC at Jack Keane Oval in Warrnambool and District Cricket Association division two on Saturday.
Gherashe was stoked with his group's twenty20 double-header success on the weekend.
The Saints won their encounters against Russells Creek and East Warrnambool YCW.
Bailen McDonald's 38 not out and Seamus Brady's 3-3 were among the highlights against Creek. Paddy Sinnott's 40 not out was a feature of the second win.
"I was really happy, twenty20s have sort of been a bugbear since I've been at the club, we've always fallen just short," Gherashe said.
He felt the team bowled well.
"The second game, especially, to defend 100 runs was pretty hard," he said.
The coach has been preparing his troops for the switch to two-dayers.
"It's just going back to basics again because twenty20 cricket is totally different from two-day cricket," he said.
"You still execute the same skills but there's a lot of different tactical planning inside the game. You have to be a lot more patient you have to let the ball do a lot of more for you and when you're batting you have to wait for those bad balls."
The Saints coach highlighted the team's improved fielding this season, noting it had claimed numerous run-outs.
"Our fielding has gone to another level," he said.
"We're getting much closer to that level of fielding where we can say we can put a score on the board and defend it."
Captain Matt Webster has also been pleased with the side's progress after it lost the opening two matches of the season.
"We started the year off a bit slow and everyone was lacking a bit of confidence," he said. "But the last few weeks before Christmas everyone was starting to gain a bit of momentum and gaining confidence with more time out in the middle."
The skipper felt his players stepped up in what he called a do-or-die twenty20 double-header.
