St. Peter’s College will be hoping to retain the Peter A. Pillai Memorial Shield for the second successive year when they take on traditional rivals St. Joseph’s College in the 39th annual Battle of the Saints limited over cricket encounter on March 9 at the R. Premadasa Stadium. Last year the Peterites under the captaincy of Shehan Fernando cruised to a convincing six wicket victory as they went on to complete a fine double having earlier won the Big Match by the identical margin. St. Joseph’s College last won the Shield in 2011 under the leadership Rosco Thatil and they also lead the series with 19 wins against their opponents 17 victories with one tie and one match ending in a no decision.
