The 26-year-old opener writes a personal letter to express an ordeal of difficult past 9 months after being suspended for executing the ball tampering in Capetown
Bancroft describes his younger self in the letter “Many people will judge you as a cheat, but that is OK. Always love and respect everyone. You will love those people because you forgive them. Just like you’re going to forgive yourself. “You know you cannot say sorry enough, but actually it is time you allow your cricket to be about what you have learned and use this opportunity to make a great impact”.
Cameron Bancroft also mentioned his tough time while arriving back to Australia in Perth after being suspended
“The arrival back to Perth will be tougher than anything you could ever imagine. Reporters and cameras will be lined up at the airport trying to get a glimpse of you as you return home,” he wrote.
“You will be ushered out the back of the airport to see the familiar face of [Justin Langer]. The reality and the enormity of this event will have set in by now.
“Stay strong as you prepare for your press conference at the WACA. Speak honestly and from the heart”.
