81st ‘Battle of the Maroons’ on March 6 and 7

The 81st ‘Battle of the Maroons’, between Anand and Nalanda will be played on March, 6 and 7, at the SSC grounds.

A week later, on March 14, the limited overs match between these two teams will be played at the same venue.

The principle sponsor of the two matches will be Mobitel (Pvt.) Ltd.

The inaugural encounter between these two schools was played in 1924.

In 2009, for the first time, the big match was organised by a joint organising committee.

The two schools have produced over 40 players who have and are representing Sri Lanka at the highest level, since the country was accorded Test status in 1981. The joint organizing committee is co-chaired by Upali Dharmadasa and Ravi Ahangama.
