Sri Lanka A 259 (Udawatte 67, Mubarak 40, Wijekoon 51) v Kent 7 for 0 (Dexter 6*, Tredwell 1*) - Match abandoned
Scorecard

Rain denied Sri Lanka A the chance to make it three wins out of three on their tour. They made 259 for 8 against Kent at Canterbury, but four overs into the home side's reply a torrential downpour caused the match to be abandoned.

Nevertheless, it was a good work-out for Sri Lanka's batsmen, with Mahela Udawatte and Gayan Widekoon making half-centuries, while Jehan Mubarak once more proved his class with 40. Martin van Jaarsveld was Kent's most successful bowler, with 3 for 43, but James Iles's second-ever wicket for Kent's first team caught the eye.

Opening the bowling with Robbie Joseph, the 17-year-old Iles induced Dilruwan Perera's edge for 6. He returned figures of 1 for 27 from 6, a handy start for one who has just one first-class match under his belt (against Cambridgeshire UCCE last year) and given that he was bowling to some formidable opposition.

Neil Dexter and James Tredwell had made a stodgy start to Kent's innings, with seven runs from the four overs that were possible.
