South Africa batsman Colin Ingram has signed a three-year deal with Glamorgan, which will keep him with the club until the end of the 2018 season.
Ingram will join Glamorgan as a Kolpak player, which means that he does not count as an overseas signing.
“I’m delighted to be joining Glamorgan,” Ingram said. “I had my first taste of playing county cricket with Somerset last July and I enjoyed it. I’ve spoken to Jacques Rudolph about the club and I’m looking forward to the challenge and to playing with my new team-mates.”
Glamorgan’s chief executive, Hugh Morris, added: “Signing a player of Colin Ingram’s undoubted calibre and experience is a great boost as we continue our preparations ahead of the new season. Our strategy is to develop a team with a strong Welsh identity, but we have always said that we need pillars of experienced players in key positions to supplement our home-grown talent by recruiting from outside our borders.
“Colin is an outstanding talent and aged 29 is in the prime of his career. Anyone in Cardiff, who saw his innings against the West Indies last year in the Champions Trophy couldn’t help be impressed. I look forward to welcoming Colin to Glamorgan.”
