17 Oct 2022 | Cricket

Glamorgan Cricket is delighted to announce that Colin Ingram has signed a new two-year contract extension with the Club.

Next season, Ingram (37) will feature as one of the Welsh county’s overseas signings, along with Australians Marnus Labuschagne and Michael Neser with two of the three players available to be selected for each match.

The South African batter was in sublime form for Glamorgan this year, scoring 596 first-class runs in just five matches, with three centuries.

He was also our leading run-scorer in the Royal London Cup with 342 runs in the competition, which included a List A career-best 155 against Kent Spitfires.

Ingram joined Glamorgan in 2015 and is among the Club's finest-ever white-ball players.

He is our top run-scorer in T20 cricket with 2,357 runs and averages over 67 in List A for the Welsh county with eight centuries from just 38 matches.

As part of the new deal, Ingram will also continue his role in mentoring our young batters and coaching on the Glamorgan Pathway.

Speaking on signing his new deal, Ingram said: “I’m thrilled to have signed this new deal with Glamorgan.

“I really enjoyed my cricket this season and returning to the red-ball arena where I probably had my best ever year for the Club.

“We came very close to promotion and next year I want to help us realise that goal and hopefully win the Vitality Blast, which remains one of my main targets in cricket.

“Wales is home and I can’t wait to play for the Club for another two years and continue to work with the next generation of Welsh cricketers.”

Director of cricket, Mark Wallace, added: “Colin was in extraordinary form this season and looked like he was playing better than ever.

“We know he is a brilliant white-ball player but seeing him put in those County Championship performances after a few years away from red-ball cricket was fantastic.

“We now have three world-class overseas players to pick from which gives us plenty of options heading into next year.

“He brings so much experience to the squad which our players can feed off, and it’s fantastic that our young players can also tap into his knowledge as he continues to coach on our pathway.”
