Somerset have signed South Africa batsman Colin Ingram as a replacement for his countryman Alviro Petersen, who will be travelling to Sri Lanka for a Test series in July.
Ingram has represented South Africa in 31 ODIs and has an average of 32.42.
“I am really looking forward to joining Somerset,” Ingram said. “It will be my first experience of County Cricket and I can’t wait to experience the vibe around it which everyone talks about.
“Cricket-wise I just want to get stuck in and perform for the team and keep on delivering like Alviro has been doing.”
Somerset director of Cricket Dave Nosworthy added: “Finding quality overseas replacements is really tough these days due the various International tour schedules. Nevertheless we have managed to source one in Colin Ingram and I am looking forward to his arrival. Colin has represented South Africa predominantly in ODIs and will fit the gap perfectly left by Alviro.”
