Former South African batter Colin Ingram has announced his two-year contract extension with Glamorgan County Cricket Club (GCCC), enabling him to stay until 2024. Ingram joined Glamorgan back in 2015 under Kolpak after playing for South Africa between 2010 and 2013.

​He has established himself as one of the legends of the county in white-ball cricket, scoring 2,357 T20 runs, and 2,026 List-A runs from 85 and 38 matches respectively. In 34 First-Class games, he has scored 2,233 runs with seven tons and six fifties.

The left-handed batter had a prolific County Championship 2022 season, scoring 596 runs, including three centuries, apart from being the club's leading run-getter in the Royal London Cup 2022.

He became the club's third overseas player confirmed for the 2023 season along with Australia's Marnus Labuschagne and Michael Neser.

"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,"

Mark Wallace, Director of Cricket, welcomed Ingram's decision to prolong his stay.

 "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."

For South Africa, the 37-year-old played 31 ODIs and nine T20Is.
