Amit Bhandari and and Salvi struck early for India A, having Glamorgan at one stage at 35 for 3. Balaji then bowled Daniel Cherry, but that was India A's last success for the day. Adrian Shaw (27 n.o.) and Mark Wallace (24 n.o.) stitched together a 49-run partnership for the fifth wicket, taking Glamorgan through to stumps only 61 runs behind with six wickets in hand.
