In some breaking news coming in from Australia, it has been reported that after batsman Cameron Bancroft’s fresh comments on the very controversial sandpaper gate incident, Cricket Australia has decided to start reinvestigation of the matter.
The announcement was made public after Cameron Bancroft’s surprising revelation that many more players other than him, Steve Smith and David Warner, were aware of the plan. The opening batsman hinted that the bowlers was apparently ‘involvement was ‘self-explanatory’ as the ball-tampering was done to their benefit only.
“Yeah, look, I think, yeah, I think it’s pretty probably self-explanatory,” an hesitant Bancroft told The Guardian when asked about who else knew about the ploy apart from the punished players.
Bancroft, while taking full responsibility of the wrong doing himself, said the following:
“Look, all I wanted to do was to be responsible and accountable for my own actions and part. Yeah, obviously what I did benefits bowlers and the awareness around that, probably, is self-explanatory. I guess one thing I learnt through the journey and being responsible is that’s where the buck stops. Had I had better awareness I would have made a much better decision,” the batsman added further.
