It’ll be red and white for Hogan and Ingram
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.”
