The welfare society of Sri Lanka Cricket organized a traditional Avurudhu ulela for the staff and immediate family members on 21st April 2010 at SSC grounds. This event was attended by a large gathering who were first hosted to a customary New Year breakfast of milk rice and indigenous sweets.

Avurudhu ulela comprised a range of fun filled traditional games for children, ladies and men to their utmost enjoyment. Significantly, much enthusiasm was shown by them to take part in the games which offered valuable gifts for winners.

A six a side softball cricket tournament was also organized to coincide with this occasion which in turn enhanced the spirits of the event. A similar Avurudhu ulela was separately held for the staff and family members of Rangiri Dambulla International Cricket Stadium in Dambulla on 29th April 2010 with same pomp and glitter.
