In the Cape Town Test match, there has been another breakthrough now on opener Cameron Bancroft who has been banned for nine months by Cricket Australia (CA) in the Ball Tempering controversy. English cricket county Somerset has banned Bancroft for the 2018 season. Somerset was going to sign back with Bancroft for this season, but now he has withdrawn his steps. Cricket dot com dot au has written with Somerset Director Andy Hare, “I have spoken to the CEO of the club in the morning, the captain, the chief coach, and we have decided for the interest of the club that Cameron Bencrafts will not allow our foreigners in the 2018 season There will be no players. ”
He said, “We have seen this whole matter more closely as a club, as well as the information that we could collect from external elements. I talked to Cameron several times since Saturday, they have a lot of maturity He told me that he is embarrassed by his actions and he has apologized to everybody related to the club. ” Somerset team Director Andy Hurry said Bancroft would not be the club’s overseas player for the 2018 season.
Australia’s Steve Smith and David Warner were also found guilty in this dispute. CA has banned these two players for a year or so. After the CA’s decision, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has banned both of them from the upcoming 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
We are currently undertaking the process to recruit a replacement overseas player that best fits our needs and will share an update in due course,” he said. Hurry said he had spoken a number of times with Bancroft since the weekend and the player had “shared his deep regret and apologised to everyone associated to the club”. “It’s important we remember there is a young man at the centre of all this, he made a poor choice as I’m sure many of us have done during our lives,” said Hurry. “What’s important now is Cameron is given the appropriate support. There is no doubt in my mind he will learn from this and he will return stronger.”
