‘It was hell of a lot of fun’ says Ingram on scoring century against Gladiators


Karachi Kings’ hard-hitting batsman Colin Ingram rated his match-winning century knock against Quetta Gladiators as one of the memorable innings of his cricketing career so far.

“It gave me much-needed confidence and I hope this victory lifts the team’s morale in upcoming matches of the league,” Ingram said while talking to the ARY News in Sharjah.

The left-handed batsman came out to bat at a pressure situation for Karachi Kings against Quetta Gladiators and rescued his team brilliantly by smashing a worthy knock of 127 runs.

Talking about the team’s plan after they were set to chase a mammoth total of 187 runs, Ingram said that they tried to keep the things as simple as they can because they knew the target was achievable.

“It was tough to chase such a total but I knew we have a chance to chase it,” he said.

Ingram was desperate to get runs for his team as in last few matches he didn’t play up to the mark. “I get quite grumpy when I don’t do well. A lot of pressure was there as we lost two early wickets but I remained on the plan which worked well for me,” he said.

Ingram to roar at National Stadium Karachi

Ingram in a video message on Monday showed his excitement to appear in front of an enthusiastic crowd of Karachi who is desperately waiting to see Kings roaring at their home ground.

“We missed you guys last night and we know you would have made a lot of noise for us,” said Ingram after putting his side on to winning ways.

He congratulated the fans who supported Kings and ensured them to show dominance in the tournament ahead. “I really look forward to play before the passionate crowd of Karachi and amuse them with some quality cricket,” he said.
