Profile

A patient opening batsman with a sound technique, Cameron Bancroft enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2014-15 when he finished third on the Sheffield Shield run tally with 896 runs at 47.15. The highlight of his summer was a maiden double-century: he batted for more than 13 hours in scoring 211 against New South Wales, proof of the high price he places on his wicket. A call-up for Australia A followed and he used his feet and the sweep to great effect in negating India A's spinners when he made 150 in Chennai. Bancroft was then named in Australia's Test squad for the 2015 tour of Bangladesh, which was cancelled due to safety concerns, and he instead had to settle for another productive Shield campaign with 732 runs at 45.75. A part-time wicketkeeper, Bancroft was handed a T20 international debut in January as gloveman, but it is in the longer form that his greatest potential lies. Highly rated by his Western Australia coach Justin Langer, Bancroft debuted for his state in one-day cricket at 18, but had to wait two more years to be given a chance in the Sheffield Shield side. Gloucestershire signed him as an overseas player for the early part of the 2016 season. It was a disappointing outcome as he made only one half-century in five matches, but they gave him an opportunity to continue his education in English conditions by re-seigning him for the whole of 2017.
