It’ll be red and white for Ho­gan and In­gram

The Cricket Paper - - FEATURE - By Ge­orge Jones

MICHAEL Ho­gan and Colin In­gram will share the cap­taincy at Glam­or­gan next sea­son.

Af­ter be­ing ap­pointed as in­terim cap­tain of the County Cham­pi­onship team in May, Ho­gan will con­tinue to lead the side in red-ball cricket next term, while In­gram will have the cap­taincy du­ties in the One-Day Cup and T20 Blast com­pe­ti­tions.

In­gram has ar­guably been the stand­out per­former of any county in lim­ited overs cricket over the last two sea­sons, hit­ting 1,026 runs and five cen­turies in white-ball com­pe­ti­tions dur­ing 2017.

Glam­or­gan fin­ished sev­enth in Di­vi­sion Two while end­ing fourth in the south group of the One-Day Cup, though they reached T20 Fi­nals Day, be­fore Birm­ing­ham Bears beat them in the semi-fi­nals.

Glam­or­gan chief ex­ec­u­tive Hugh Mor­ris, said: “We are very for­tu­nate to have two ex­cel­lent lead­ers within the squad. By split­ting the cap­taincy dur­ing a busy sea­son both play­ers can bring fresh im­pe­tus across the dif­fer­ent for­mats.

“Af­ter step­ping in mid-sea­son, Michael has en­joyed his role as cap­tain in our Cham­pi­onship cam­paign and we are con­fi­dent in his lead­er­ship skills on and off the field, as well as his sheer metro­nomic con­sis­tency year-in, year-out, that he will help move the side for­ward.

“Colin is an ex­pe­ri­enced cap­tain who’s been hugely im­pres­sive since his ar­rival. He has played white-ball cricket around the world and pos­sesses a wealth of knowl­edge and tal­ent, which he has demon­strated he can put to dev­as­tat­ing ef­fect per­son­ally as well as in­spir­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of fu­ture Glam­or­gan stars.”
