The 67th Battle of the Golds Inter-Schools Big Match between traditional rivals St. Sebastian’s College and Prince of Wales College also ended in a tame draw at the Moratuwa Stadium on Saturday (11).

Even then, the Cambrians had the satisfaction of snatching a close first innings lead over their opponents following some exceptional bowling by Kaumal Nanayakkara and Tharuka Fernando.

The pair shared eight wickets between them as the Sebastianites were bowled out for 221 despite a fighting half century from Mishen Silva (77).

Earlier, the Cambrians were rescued by a superb knock from Vishwa Chaturanga (88) who played the sheet anchor role after they had had won the toss and elected to bat first.
