Ingram commits to Glamorgan

Glamorgan's Twenty20 captain Colin Ingram has signed a new two-year contract extension that will see him turn out for the club for the next three seasons.

The destructive left-handed batsman, who arrived at Sophia Gardens in 2015 on a Kolpak deal, has been one of the best short-form performers on the planet in recent times.

It led to the former South Africa international signing for Delhi Capitals in this year's Indian Premier League - a commitment that means he misses the 2019 Royal London Cup and so has passed the leadership of the team on to Chris Cooke.

Ingram said: "I love playing for Glamorgan, love Cardiff and I love Wales so I am delighted to sign a new white-ball contract and extend my time at the club.

"Over the last few years we've competed extremely well in white-ball cricket and put together a lot of very good performances.

"With the squad we have and the new signings we've made over the winter, I firmly believe we can keep challenging for the knockout stages of the competitions over the next few years."

The 33-year-old, nicknamed the Bulldozer, won Australia's Big Bash League last year with Adelaide Strikers and was named Glamorgan's one-day player of the year for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Glamorgan are 40/1 to win the County Championship Division 2 title in 2019 while Sussex can be backed at 11/2 and Middlesex at 7/1.
