Colin Ingram (South African Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

Known solely for his clean hitting abilities, Colin Ingram stands today as one of the most prolific T20 batsmen around the world. Born in Port Elizabeth, Colin Ingram has managed to establish his name in T20 leagues all over the world, despite a not so successful international career. After becoming the first South African to score a century on his ODI debut, Ingram disappeared in the massive talent pool of South Africa and failed to retain his spot in the National side. Ever since he joined Glamorgan in 2015, he has pretty much regained the spark that once made his name shine in South Africa’s cricket arena. With a fresh season of IPL knocking, Colin Ingram will look to stamp his authority with the bat in the biggest T20 league around the globe and hand himself some more authority to prove his INR 6.2 crore tag worthy.
