Former South African international batsman Colin Ingram committed himself to a further two years with English county side Glamorgan on Thursday. The 31-year-old - who played the last of his 31 One-Day Internationals for South Africa in 2013 - will play all formats this season but restrict himself to the limited-overs competitions next term.

Ingram, who also played Twenty20 cricket for his country, has been a success at the county - scoring 1,712 runs across all formats in his first campaign. However, a knee injury last season prevented him playing in the County Championship but he starred for Glamorgan in the limited-overs competitions.

"I am delighted to commit to Glamorgan," said Ingram. "After being sidelined by injury from first-class cricket last year I'll be focusing more on the white-ball game from next season. However I'm intent on playing for Glamorgan across all formats for the rest of this season and will do everything I can to ensure we enjoy a successful year."
