History beckons for Peter Siddle and his Victorian cricket teammates as they aim for a fourth-straight Sheffield Shield title.
A win over Tasmania from Wednesday will put them into the final against top side Queensland from March 23.
No side has won more than three Shields in a row since the nine-year reign of NSW in the 1950s.
While the Bushrangers have won five Shields during Siddle's first-class career, he has played in only one winning final - mainly because of his international commitments.
"I've been with Victoria for 13 or 14 years but I haven't actually been a part of a lot of Shield finals - personally it would be good to get in one," Siddle said.
"From a Victorian point of view, to be able to push for four in a row, that's massive for the group of guys here now, and the guys here over the past couple of years, creating a bit of a legacy.
"It is a massive game this week."
Victoria have surged since the Christmas break, beating WA and then NSW last week at Junction Oval.
"That's how you want it to be - if we win, it just gives us good momentum going into the final," Siddle said.
"If you lose, the season's over ... obviously there are little scenarios, if we draw.
"But leading into a final, you want that momentum, so we want to go down there with the mindset of winning the game.
"(The NSW win) showed when we get everything right, we can put a lot of pressure on a lot of teams."
Only .18 of a point separates second-placed Tasmania from Victoria on the ladder.
The Bushrangers have brought Eamonn Vines into their squad for Will Pucovski, who was subbed out of the NSW game because of concussion.
