After regrouping himself and finding back his mojo, tainted Australian opener is all set to take up the baton as the captain of the County club, Durham, for their campaigns in the County Championship and One-Day Cup. Bancroft will be playing his first non-Australian cricketing tournament since coming out of the dismal 9-month ball-tampering ban. He was part of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2018-19 edition, where he played for Perth Scorchers and then also represented his domestic team, Western Australia in the recently concluded Sheffield Shield season.
It’s how you’re able to grow as a person
During a recent interview ahead of his County return, Bancroft revealed the fact that everyone is bound to make some sort of mistakes, but in the end it depends on how the individual grows as a person. He also mentioned that it is very important to be honest and accept those mistakes. Bancroft admitted the fact that he is accountable for all his false actions done in the past.
“We all make mistakes and I guess it’s how you’re able to grow as a person, in admitting and being honest with yourself about those mistakes. I certainly have been and, as a person, that’s something that I’m completely accountable for and I wouldn’t have it any other way,” said Cameron Bancroft.
I’d love to play for Australia once again
He stated that he still aspires to represent Australia once again in the longest format of the game. However, he also knows the fact that it is not possible as of now. The right-hander has so far played eight Tests for Australia in which he has managed to score 402 runs at an average of 30.92 which includes three half-centuries.
“The aspiration to play Test cricket is certainly in my mind and where I’d love to be one day. But I also can’t be there. I’m here right now. (Playing for Australia) would mean a lot to me, definitely. But I also know that I’ve got a lot of great things in my life,” he added.
