Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Colin Ingram has extended his white-ball stay with Welsh county club, Glamorgan.

According to their club's official website, Ingram signed new two-year white-ball contract, which will keep him at the club until at least the end of the 2021 season.

He has been in the club since 2015 after joining as a Kolpak player having made 40 international appearances for the Proteas.

In white-ball cricket, Ingram has played over 53 T20 matches for the Welsh county has amassed 1 770 runs at an average over 41 with three centuries.

He was awarded his county cap in 2017 and went on to win both Glamorgan's Player of the Year and One-Day Player of the Year awards that season. He also won the club's 2018 One-Day Player of the Year award after scoring 430 runs at an average over 53 in the T20 Blast and 402 runs in just eight matches in the One-Day Cup.

"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.

"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."

Ingram has successfully played for a number of T20 teams and franchises throughout the world, winning the Big Bash in 2018 with Adelaide Strikers before he captained the side in this year's competition.

He is currently playing for the Karachi Kings in the PSL and recently struck 127 not out from just 59 balls - the highest ever score in the competition. Ingram will also feature for Delhi Capitals in this year's IPL before he links up with his Glamorgan team-mates ahead of the T20 Blast.
