The last outright win for the Antonians was in 1992 and Trintiy won last under Niroshan Dickwella in 2012 after the 1986 win under Thushara Weerasuriya. The victory came after 35 years. St. Anthony's College Kandy are the current champions after their 1st innings win in 2014. The 98th encounter in 2015 ended in a draw with only one session of play possible as the match was abandoned due to bad weather. The match also went into the record books as the shortest ever bigmatch, lasting for only two hours. The winner of the limited overs encounter, usually played a week after the 2-day match, will be awarded the Sir Richard Aluwihare Trophy. (en)
