OBU, ColomboSenior journalist Elmo Rodrigopulle with over 50 years of sports writing particularly cricket for the Times Group and Lake House Group, and in helping the progress and development of the game was honoured and felicitated at the Dialog/Sri Lanka Cricket awards ceremony 2013 held at the Grand Ballroom, Waters Edge on Tuesday. Picture shows Rodrigopulle receiving his award from Hirantha Perera, Assistant Secretary SLC .

Rodrigopulle played and captained his school St Benedictís College. His crowning moment was when he captured a hat trick against St. Peterís College. He later played for Tamil Union, BRC, Colts and Saracens. He was the first to score a century when limited over cricket for the Browns Trophy was introduced in 1972. He achieved this feat for Saracens against his old club Tamil Union. Rodrigopulle also has centuries in Sara Trophy and Donovan Andree Trophy to his credit. He also played for the Board Presidentís X1 against Hong Kong in 1972 under the captaincy of Michael Tissera. He was an all-rounder (Rright hand bat and leg spin/googly bowler).

On behalf of the global Benedictine fraternity, we congratulate our loyal Old Ben Elmo Rodrigopulle for his dedicated service and commitment rendered to the sporting world and also the honour brought to our Alma mater, and wish him good health and Godís abundant blessings in his future endeavors.
