Cameron Bancroft Cleared Off Any Serious Injury After Being Hit in Throat
Cameron Bancroft, the main culprit in the ball-tampering saga at Cape Town has been struck with yet another blow. He escaped from a major injury scare after sustaining a blow in his throat.
The incident took place on Saturday (July 21) and he was admitted to the nearby hospital.
Thankfully, he was cleared off from the severe injury and was eventually discharged from the medical centre. Western Australia-based Bancroft went through scans and X-rays which revealed nothing of anything serious.
For his involvement in the ball-tampering saga, the right-handed batsman is currently serving the nine-month ban from professional cricket after being sanctioned by Cricket Australia (CA).
During the course, he signed a contract with Darwin’s Striker League and plying his trade with them.
Ruled out from Sunday’s clash:
The incident took place during the match when he edged the ball right into his throat. He was immediately down on his knees and took a time to continue his batting. His reaction reminded of late Philip Hughes incident which was a bit similar to it.
Despite saving himself from serious injury, he got a tear to cartilage in his trachea. The 26-year-old Bancroft spent the whole night in Royal Darwin Hospital under Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
The injury ruled him out from the Sunday’s most-anticipated clash. The game was expected to be a grand one with Bancroft and Warner locking horns against each other.
However, destiny played it part and drawn curtains on fans’ hope.
Coming to his professional career, Cameron Bancroft has the outright chance to feature for Australia in the 2019 World Cup ahead of Warner and Steven Smith.
With Cricket Australia (CA) suffering heavy losses and Bancroft carrying his golden form, most probably, he will make his way into the side ahead of ICC’s coveted event scheduled in the United Kingdom (UK).
