With a theme 'Spirit of Cricket Legacy for Future Generations' the glittering trophy is named after two cricketing greats produced by these two highly respected academic institutions in the island. The cricket encounter between Nalanda and Trinity had been an annual encounter in the Schools cricket calendar since 1978.
Mahela and Sanga, as they are endearingly called by the cricket loving public all over the world are two cricketing gentlemen who have shown their willingness to contribute to society on countless occasions. The friendship and the bond between Mahela and Sanga is a classic example of their commitment to the sport in particular and the society in general.
Trinity College together with Nalanda College 88 Group Batch under the auspices of Nalanda College Old Boys Association/Nalanda College Past Cricketers Association are organizing this traditional annual encounter.
Last year in the inaugural trophy encounter Trinity beat Nalanda outright by 47 runs to be the first holders of this prestigious piece of silverware.
