The "Battle of the Blues", which is undoubtedly unparalleled in terms of prestige, is aptly described as the ‘legendary Big Match’. It is the most sought out school cricket match over a long stretch of time. Since the first match between these two prestigious schools played at the Galle Face Green in 1879, it has produced great cricketers and outstanding personalities while it has continued to enrich the great traditions of the hallowed encounter.

At the same time, this momentous event annually opens doors for present schoolboys to rejoice and old boys of both colleges to renew their acquaintance and evoke memories of the days gone by.

I hope that every cricketer keeps in the forefront of his mind the fact that this game should be played in an electrifying and exciting atmosphere while maintaining the high standards of sportsmanship and every spectator should take much care to maintain the good name of their respective colleges.

I would also like to thank all stakeholders for their tireless work done to organise a great event of this magnitude.

I have no doubt that this 140th "Battle of the Blues" will follow the best traditions and give the spectators a remarkable game.

I wish both teams the best of luck and may the victory be to those who truly deserve it. Nevertheless, let it be Royal all the way.
