Cape Town - South Africa's Colin Ingram and Tabraiz Shamsi have been called up as late additions to the 2018 Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Ingram will replace Chris Lynn - who returns to Australia - for the Trinbago Knight Riders, while Shamsi is replacing Australia's Tom Cooper for the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.

Ingram has played 31 ODIs and 9 T20Is for the Proteas and has also played in the T20 Blast, Big Bash and Pakistan Super League.

The former Proteas batsman will join the Knight Riders ahead of their match against Guyana Amazon Warriors on September 9 at Providence Stadium, Guyana.

"Colin Ingram is a proven performer and an outstanding T20 player, who will add fire power to the top order and a useful bowling option as well. We are delighted to have him join Team TKR for the conclusion of CPL 2018," Venky Mysore, Director of Trinbago Knight Riders told the CPL official website.

Shamsi has played for the Patriots for the previous three CPL seasons, finishing the 2017 tournament with 11 wickets at an average of 20.27.
