Australia’s Test opener Cameron Bancroft recently addressed a press conference after reaching Sydney post the ball tampering scandal in Cape Town.

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia has already sanctioned the disgraced Australian trio with bans.

Television footage showed Bancroft take what he said was a yellow tape out of his trouser pocket before rubbing the ball to change its condition.

However, later Steve Smith said the team’s “leadership group” had a plan, carried out by Cameron Bancroft, to tamper with the ball to “get an advantage.”

Meanwhile, CA slapped a 9-month ban on Bancroft while Smith and David Warner got 12 months ban.

The 25-year-old, heartbroken by the events, expressed his deep regret for his actions. He also apologised to the Australian public and fans and asked for forgiveness.

I want to say that I am very sorry,” Bancroft said. “I love the game of cricket and playing for my nation and my state there is no greater pride for me. So, I am extremely disappointed and regret my actions. I am sorry to the people who have looked up to me around the world, especially the kids. I know I’m a role model and haven’t acted like one in this instance,” he added.
