PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Trinbago Knight Riders have named South African Colin Ingram to replace Australian Chris Lynn for the play-offs of the Caribbean Premier League.

Lynn, a 28-year-old right-hander who has had a lean run for TKR with just 92 runs from seven innings, returns home following the reigning champions' final home game on Friday against Barbados Tridents.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have called up left-arm spinner Tabraiz Shamsi to replace Tom Cooper, while Jamaica Tallawahs have named Ish Sodhi to replace fellow leg- spinner Adam Zampa for their remaining matches in the tournament.

Cooper and Zampa, both Australians, are returning home for the start of their domestic season.

Director of TKR Venky Mysore said while it was disappointing to lose Lynn, he expected Ingram to be a more than adequate replacement.

“Losing a player of the calibre of Chris Lynn is a blow for any team, but 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,” Mysore said.

“We are delighted to have him join Team TKR for the conclusion of Hero CPL 2018.”

Ingram, 33, most recently played for Glamorgan in the English Vitality Blast during which he produced some good form for the Welsh club.

TKR currently head the standings on 10 points, ahead of second-placed Guyana Amazon Warriors (10) and Jamaica Tallawahs (10) only on net run rate.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are currently fourth on nine points, with the top four having already qualified for the playoffs.
