Sports Journalist Elmo Rodrigopulle, no more

Veteran sports writer Elmo Rodrigopulle passes away on Monday (20) following a brief illness. 

He captained St. Benedict’s College in 1960 and then represented the Ceylon Board President’s XI before becoming a journalist. He’s covered cricket in all Test playing nations.

Elmo was in the newspaper world for 52 years – an achievement that will not be equalled or surpassed.
