As expected the 84th Battle of the Saints big match cricket encounter between St. Joseph’s College and St. Peter’s College ended in a stalemate draw at the P Sara Oval in Colombo yesterday.

From an overnight score of 190 for 6 the Peterites went on to make 244 in reply to 195 made by the Joes.

Peterite Shalith Fernando contributed 58 with six fours and two sixes while Ranmith Jayasena chipped in with 55 with four fours.

Shalith Fernando and Sulakshana Fernando associated in a 91-run stand for the third wicket on the previous day.

Like it is done in the past the second innings was a big bore with this time the Joes playing safe to ensure a draw utilizing as many as 83 overs to score 237 for 8 and declare leaving the Peterites to make 189 in 15 overs which even a machine would not have been able to do.

When the match ended the Peterites reached 57 for 1 in nine overs with Santhush Gunatilleke making 39. And so the big match ended in a lousy draw. On the first day Sri Lanka youth player and Joes skipper Jehan Daniel scored 93 with six sixes and made only 24 in the second innings.

Sachin Silva took three wickets for 24 runs and Mohammed Ameen grabbed two wickets for 71 runs.
