St. Peters College Colombo beat their traditional rivals St. Josephs College Colombo by six wickets a short while ago in the annual Battle of the Saints encounter played at the P.Sara stadium. Janith Liyanage scored an unbeaten 68 during the Peterite chase. St.Peters College were set a target of 113 runs after the Josephians were bundled out in their second essay for 164 runs.

The head coach of St.Josephs College together with the entire cricket advisory committee resigned hours before the big match due to a dispute with the Rector over a selection of a player, who was not in the original team for the annual encounter. 

Mirror sports provided a live webcast of the match, spanning two days together  with comprehensive updates of the Battle of the Saints.

    We knew it hours before the big match, when the administration fell apart. It seems Joes follows the footsteps of SL Cricket.

    Well done joes you paved the way for peterite victory. fonny was the cause for all this misery, 3 years ago it was the same fonny who sent his team mate to 'sin bin' never to shine again. Rector why dont you convert SJC to a photoframing company. St Joseph pray for us !!!!!!

    Well done petes. Hope the match was played in the spirite of the game. Well done boys. Hope no excuses are given by the joes for the loss. The josephian playes have been thought a good lessn by their rector; no matter what life throws at you; do the job that has been entrusted to you. Tallent, persivearance, sacrifice does not always garrenty you success. Money, inluence and the right connections always triumphs over any other.

    solomon Sunday, 04 March 2012 10:24 AM

    Even in other spheres Joes teachers do not give due place to the truly deserving person. We are not surprised to here that hours before the big match one who was not in the original team was selected to play. What was his contribution?
