Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Colin Ingram will not be returning for the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League later this year.

According to the Adelaide Striker's official website, Ingram has decided not to play next season after completing his two-year contract.

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.

"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," SACA General Manager, High Performance Tim Nielsen 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, who fetched the highest price in the Indian Premier League auction, is currently in India playing for the Delhi Capitals.
