Cameron Bancroft has sealed his return to Durham Cricket as the county cricket club has re-signed the Australian Test opener for the 2021 season of the County Championship.
Cameron Bancroft has been a key player of the county cricket club since his debut in the team. He was a captain of Durham in both the County Championship and One Day Cup in 2019. The same year he registered an impressive score of 726 runs at an average of 45.37 in nine County Championship games.
In the One Day Cup the 28-year old added another 377 runs at an average of 94.25. However, the player had to leave the tournament midway after receiving a call-up for the 2019 Ashes. The Ashes turned out to be a success as the team emerged victoriously.
Bancroft is currently engaged with Western Australia for the Sheffield Shield campaign. He will return to the club in May after completing the tournament.
Expressing his delight over Bancroft’s return, Durham’s Director of Cricket Marcus North said: “We are really pleased to welcome Cameron back to Emirates Riverside this summer.
“He had a positive influence on and off the field during his time with us in 2019.
“Cameron is currently having a fantastic summer down under for Western Australia and we look forward to him having a big impact for Durham when he re-joins the squad in May.”
