Their main encounter will be against archrivals St. Anthony’s College Katugastota which is scheduled for March 11 and 12. Out of the 97 big match encounters Trinitians have won 23 with 11 won by Antonians. The last time St. Anthony’s won was in 1992. Trinity won last under Niroshan Dickwella in 2012. The 2015 encounter ended in a draw with only one session of play possible due to wet weather. The match received a place in the record books as the shortest big match.
