Colin Ingram picked up two awards in England on Wednesday night for his T20 performances for Glamorgan.
Ingram walked away with T20 Player of the Year and Sixes League Winner, for hitting the most sixes in the tournament, after having a great T20 season for Glamorgan this year.
He played 14 matches for Glamorgan in the Blast, scoring 502 runs which included a high score of 101 not out and four fifties. Not at all known for his all-round abilities, Ingram’s nagging leg-breaks also produced nine wickets, including best figures of 4-32 in the quarter-final, which his side lost to Yorkshire. In a group match against Somerset, he scored 54 and picked up figures of 3-20 in an incredible all-round effort.
His strike rate throughout the tournament was 164.59, and comfortably hit the most sixes – six more than Australian all-rounder Dan Christian.
It was a successful season all round for Ingram, who also starred in the Royal London One Day Cup, scoring 367 runs from eight matches at an average of 61.16, and remarkably, a strike rate of 126.55. He hit the most sixes in that tournament too, 19 in all.
Ingram’s qualities can’t currently extend to the national setup as he has a Kolpak contract with the Welsh county. He last played an ODI in 2013, the last of his 32 caps.
