Glamorgan have announced that South African batsman Colin Ingram has signed a new white-ball contract, extending his stay with the club until the end of the 2021 season.

He will rejoin his Glamorgan team-mates having represented Adelaide Strikers, Karachi Kings (where he has broken the Pakistan Super League's highest score - 127* off 59 balls) and Delhi Capitals over the winter.

"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," said Ingram.

Ingram has penned a new deal with Glamorgan

"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."

Director of cricket, Mark Wallace, said: "Signing Colin for another two years is a massive statement from the club. Any team out there would want him in their side to secure his services is a big boost for us. 

"He is an incredible destructive batsman and over the last few years has proved himself to be one of the very best white-ball players in the world.

"As well as his batting, he also brings very good leadership qualities to the side and has a wealth of experience in the game, which will help or young players continue to develop as we look to carry on our good form in white-ball cricket and compete for silverware."
