Australian batsman Cameron Bancroft, who is currently playing county cricket in England, made a crush in Cricket Australia by making a statement last week. He had said that the information about the tampering of the ball in the 2018 Cape Town Test was also available to the bowlers of the team including Captain Smith, Vice-captain Warner. The ball-tampering incident in 2018 was like a stigma on Cricket Australia’s forehead. Smith and Warner had to face a one-year ban, while Bancroft had to face a 9-month ban for executing the incident. Following the recent statement by Bancroft, the Australian bowlers also jointly issued a joint statement, in which their anger was clearly visible. Whereas, Cricket Australia, after talking to Bancroft, made it clear that the investigation into the matter will not be reopened.
