Colin Ingram's recent contract extension has paved the way for a potential return to first-class and List A cricket for 'Kingram', as he continues on as Glamorgan's T20 overseas player and now will act as reserve to Marnus Labuschagne in the longer formats of the game.

He was Glamorgan’s white-ball captain in 2018 for both the Royal One-Day Cup and T20 Blast campaigns. He stayed on as captain for the 2019 Blast, before ultimately relinquishing both roles to Chris Cooke.

2019 was another solid year for Ingram, as he finished second in Glamorgan's T20 run charts. He also demonstrated his immense power as he demolished Craig Overton and Jerome Taylor towards the end of Glamorgan's innings in the 2019 edition of #TheBigMatch.

Colin Ingram enjoyed a stellar season in white-ball cricket for Glamorgan in 2016. His efforts in the NatWest T20 Blast with both bat and ball helped Glamorgan secure a place in the quarter-final of the competition, with the South African also striking his maiden T20 hundred against the Essex Eagles at Chelmsford. His accurate leg-spin was also used to good effect with Colin taking a career-best 4/32 in the quarter-final against the Yorkshire Vikings

A knee injury prevented Colin from playing any first-class cricket during 2016 and building on the favourable impression he cut during his debut season with Glamorgan in 2015 when the assertive left-hander scored a pair of Championship hundreds.

Colin has had a wonderful season in 2018. After ditching red-ball cricket to focus on the white-ball game, ‘Kingram’ has gone from strength to strength. He is now Glamorgan’s white-ball captain, and in 2018 he was at his magnificent best averaging over 50 in both formats. He was also named in the PSL team of the tournament and has been putting on stellar performances around the world.

Born in Port Elizabeth in 1985, Colin made his first-class debut for Free State in October 2004 and, after completing his studies at the University of Free State, he established a regular place in the top-order of the Eastern Province line-up. After representing South Africa A, he made his One-Day International debut in October 2010 against Zimbabwe, and duly became the first Protea to score a century on his first appearance in limited-overs international cricket as he struck 124.

Colin has a wealth of experience in domestic cricket in his native South Africa, appearing in 31 One-Day Internationals plus 9 T20 Internationals, He also played for Somerset during 2014 when fellow South African Alviro Petersen was absent on Test duty, besides also playing in the Indian Premier League for the Delhi Daredevils.
