Colin Ingram hammered nine sixes in a career-best 114 in a NatWest T20 Blast run-fest match at Chelmsford in which 443 runs were scored in the afternoon.

After the match the Glamorgan centurion said, "I’ve enjoyed my last couple of seasons coming out to Essex.

"There is often a short boundary and I try and get my wrists involved to pick it out. I’ve been a bit lucky coming here, a few half-chances have gone down, but I just try and take advantage.

"It’s a nice wicket with a quick outfield. Sometimes you just have grounds you enjoy going to.

“We were able to play with a lot of freedom today, chasing a big target. I enjoyed the partnerships with different guys. We’re starting to build better partnerships and that’s helping us get these big scores.

“I was quite committed to seeing it through to the end of the game. So to come off feeling I’d left the boys something to do wasn’t great.
 
"But credit to the guys who batted at the back-end, they held their nerve and it was an incredible win. Craig Meschede and Waggy played beautifully to get us home. It was another last-ball finish and nice to be on the winning side.”
