Glamorgan eased to a seven wicket win with more than 24 overs to spare against Gloucestershire in Cardiff.

The visitors were dismissed for just 131 after being put in, Miles Hammond top-scoring with 42.

Seam bowler Ruaidhri Smith took 3-31 while David Lloyd took 3-26.

Will Bragg anchored the Glamorgan reply with an unbeaten 45, sharing half-century stands with James Kettleborough (22) and Aneurin Donald, who hit an aggressive 31.

The home side rarely looked like having to chase a big target with only teenage keeper Branden Allen (22 not out) making a contribution after Hammond was run out.

Bragg's solid knock made sure that the early loss of captain Jacques Rudolph did not threaten to turn the game.

Both sides will be strengthened by the addition of overseas players before the start of the Championship campaign.

Glamorgan next take on Cardiff MCCU on 29 March in a 50-over game, while Gloucestershire travel to face Warwickshire at Edgbaston on 28 and 29 March.
