Ball Tampering Incident


In March 2018, Bancroft admitted to ball-tampering using sandpaper against South Africa. The television footage showed him rubbing the ball with sandpaper and then putting it down the front of his trousers after seeing that the footage had been broadcast. The ICC handed over three demerit points to Cameron. Cricket Australia investigated into the matter and held Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith and David Warner guilty of ball-tampering. Bancroft was handed a nine-month ban from international and domestic cricket in Australia. He made his return to international cricket in the 2019 Ashes series.
