Colin Ingram has signed a two-year contract for Glamorgan as a player for the club overseas. The 35-year-old has spent five seasons at Cardiff as a domestic player, but the post-Brexit cancellation of Kolpak registrations has resulted in the county having to re-sign him as one of the two foreign players on the roster.
Ingram joins Marnus Labuschagne, the rising Australian star, as a player on the overseas team. The latter has pledged to play in all three formats for Glamorgan. Ingram will be available for the T20 Blast, where he has been the club’s top scorer since 2015. Another Queenslander, Michael Neser, is available for the One-Day Cup and the championship. Ingram can fill it out if one of the first choice players is absent overseas.
Glamorgan also announced that Ingram would be in Cardiff for the entire summer and that he would become a mentor for the academy’s batsmen and a trail coach when not playing or training. « I want to be in Cardiff, » said Ingram. « I love to play here and my family loves the city and is in Wales. I love playing T20 cricket but I want to challenge myself again in the longer formats of the game and I look forward to having the opportunity to do so at the club I love.
« I have always been passionate about helping the next generation of cricketers and it is really exciting for me to work with these young Welsh players to help them improve and share my knowledge internationally and franchise. «
Mark Wallace, Glamorgan Cricket Director, said: « He has played all over the world and brings invaluable experience to our players. Now we can take full advantage of these experiences all the way. « . « Colin has a lot of experience in all three formats and has excelled for Glamorgan over the past five years. It will be a fantastic reserve option in case it is needed in the longer formats of the game. « . «
