Colin Ingram will not return to the Adelaide Strikers next summer

Colin Ingram has informed the Adelaide Strikers that he will not return next season.

The hard-hitting South African has decided not to play in the Big Bash League next summer, after completing his two-year contract with the Strikers.

SACA General Manager, High Performance Tim Nielsen said Ingram had been an outstanding recruit, on and off the field.

“We are disappointed to lose Colin but we were aware that it was a strong possibility that for family reasons he could not commit to a new contract,” he said.

“He is a quality player and leader and was one of the key players behind our first BBL title win last year. We wish Colin, Megan and family all the best.”

Ingram played 25 games for the Strikers in the past two seasons, scoring 610 runs at an average of 30.5 and strike rate of 138.95. He also led the side in 14 games when captain Travis Head was on international duties.
