Zahira, Ananda old boys in revived cricket encounter

The Old Boys of Zahira College and Ananda College Colombo will play their annual cricket encounter for the TB Jayah Trophy today at Zahira ground Maradana commencing at 9.30 am.

This is the second match between the old boys of both schools since the encounter was revived and is sponsored by Laugfs, Dialog and Nestle.

Tuan Burhanuddin Jayah (TB Jayah) was a Sri Lankan educationalist, politician, diplomat and Muslim community leader.

He started his teaching career in 1910 and was invited in 1917 by the then principal of Ananda College, PDS Kularatne to teach history and classics at the school.

He was then invited by Zahira College to be their principal where he served for 27 years.

According to the organisers, the match is being revived to rekindle the lost friendly rivalry between two neighbouring schools.

Past cricketers and old boys of both schools have been invited for the event to be graced by old boy of Ananda College Ranjith Pandithage as the chief guest.
