Ingram Leads Team as Captain Following Stellar White-Ball Performance

Specialist White-Ball Cricketer Colin ​Ingram Takes ‌on Leadership Role at Glamorgan

Colin Ingram, the formidable batsman from South Africa, has embraced a new chapter ​in his cricketing career as⁢ a specialist white-ball player, ⁣along with the added responsibility of leadership at Glamorgan.

Following the retirement of Jacques Rudolph, Colin Ingram and experienced ‌Australian bowler Michael Hogan ⁢will share the captaincy duties for the upcoming season. Hogan took‍ on the role on an interim ‌basis in ⁤the Championship ‍after Rudolph’s departure and led Glamorgan to Finals Day‌ in the NatWest Blast before the curtains fell on his career.

Having transitioned to focus primarily on white-ball cricket,​ Ingram’s‌ exceptional performances in limited-overs matches have propelled him towards participating in various global T20 tournaments. He has been the standout player ‍in county cricket over the past ⁢two seasons, ⁤with an impressive tally of 1,026 runs ‌and five centuries in white-ball competitions in 2017. His success was recognized with the PCA MVP ‌awards for the T20 Blast in ‌2016 ​and the One-Day Cup⁤ in 2017.

Although Ingram will be representing the Adelaide Strikers in the ⁢upcoming Big Bash, his venture into the IPL was with the Delhi Daredevils before he joined Glamorgan in late 2014.⁤ As‌ the new season approaches, Hogan will continue to lead the team in red-ball cricket, while Ingram will take charge in the One-Day Cup and T20 Blast tournaments.

Under Hogan’s stewardship, ‌Glamorgan secured consecutive victories against Durham and Worcestershire, who went on to clinch the Division ⁣Two title. Wrapping up the season in seventh ⁢place, Glamorgan showcased their potential with a ‌squad featuring up to eight Academy graduates towards the end of the campaign.

Glamorgan’s Chief Executive, Hugh Morris, expressed his satisfaction with the appointment of both Hogan‍ and Ingram ⁤as captains, ⁣highlighting their strong leadership qualities. The decision to divide the captaincy responsibilities across different formats aims to inject fresh energy and motivation into the team throughout the ⁢demanding season ahead.
