Sri Lanka A 309 for 3 (Jayantha 97, Mubarak 88*, Daniel 57) beat Glamorgan 168 (Wharf 42) by 141 runs

Sri Lanka A trounced a strong Glamorgan outfit by 141 runs to record their fifth consecutive win of the tour. After winning the toss and opting to bat at Cardiff, Sri Lanka amassed 309 for 3, with Saman Jayantha following up his 147 against Worcestershire with an 83-ball 97. The middle order contributed handily too - Ian Daniel made 57 while Jehan Mubarak contributed an unbeaten 88. Glamorgan were never in the hunt, and folded up for just 168.

The match also marked the returned of Simon Jones, who hadn't played a first-class game since injuring his foot in the first Test against New Zealand in May. Despite returning modest figures - none for 67 from 10 overs - he bowled with good rhythm, and was unlucky to concede a number of runs by way of edges through the slips.

The Sri Lankans have two more one-day matches scheduled - against Sussex and Kent - before playing a three-day match against the West Indians and two four-day games, against Glamorgan and Somerset.
