A resilient St. Anthony’s College team will be looking at putting together their best possible performance in the coming weeks, with the 99th big match encounter against Trinity College around the corner.
The Antonian cricketing history dates back to the early 20th century when the school in Katugastota took up the sport. The sport was centered around the school itself and soon the construction of a fully pledged ground facilitated the development of the sport. Over the years, the school has stood as a silent contributor to the sport in the country with spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan being their most famous export to the national team.

St. Anthony’s who are currently placed in tier II of the schools league have had memorable achievements over the past few years. The side led by Nimesh Gunasinghe in 2013/14 crossed a border for the first time when they won the Big Match battle on the first innings after a lapse of five years. That could be called the best of the Antonians in the past three years and with a new set of individuals making this season’s team, it will be a tough task for them to fight their way through the division.
