Days after the Australian cricketer, Cameron Bancroft claimed that the bowlers too were aware of the Sandpaper Gate incident and it has once again become the talking point. It has now been understood that Cricket Australia has approached the Australian batsman to investigate further on the matter.
Cameron Bancroft is currently in England, representing Durham in the County Championship. He recently stated in an interview with The Gaurdian that the bowlers during the game against South Africa were aware of his actions.
Ben Olivier, CA’s Executive General Manager of the National Team, stated the board spoke to him on the matter and has given him a chance to provide them with more information on the matter.
“There was obviously a thorough investigation into that incident,” Olivier said, in an online media conference on Monday morning.
“There were actions taken on the back of that, and since that time everyone who’s been involved in the (national men’s) team has worked incredibly hard to rebuild confidence and ultimately aspire to make Australians proud of the Australian cricket team.
“We’ve maintained all the way through that if anyone has any new information relating to that incident that we encourage people to come forward and discuss that with Cricket Australia.”
After Bancroft’s role in the scandal came to light, he was banned from the game for 9 months, while Steve Smith and David Warner were handed a suspension for one year.
