The 134th Battle of Blues Big Match cricket encounter between Royal College and S. Thomas’ College will take place at the Sinhalese Sports Club SSC ground today.
In Ceylon of the years gone by and Sri Lanka today, the Royal - Thomian cricket match is a undeclared holiday for the young and old of both schools. One cannot forget the fairer sex who has continued to add glamour to the event, irrespective of age.
Many great Prime Ministers, a former President, Ministers and leading citizens of the land in many fields have represented both schools in the Big Match. There have been many cricketers representing Ceylon and Sri Lanka from both schools with distinction. Some have captained the National Team with much acceptance. Thomians and Royalist young and old continue to share the friendly rivalry each year and have also continued to uphold the greatest traditions.
