The Western Australia flamboyant batter Cameron Bancroft relished a phenomenal outing with the bat in the Sheffield Shield 2022/23 season, emerging as the leading run-getter. Despite this, the batter could likely be out of the mix for the forthcoming WTC Final and the all-important Ashes 2023, as per reports.
It is understood that veteran southpaw David Warner is likely to make the cut for the 17 or 18-player squad for the World Test Championship (WTC) Final against India, and the first two Ashes Tests against England at Edgbaston and Lord’s.
I would love to see Bancroft get another opportunity at the top of the order: Mark Taylor
“My old way of thinking, I always like a right-and-left-handed combination. So, I would love to see Cameron Bancroft get another opportunity at the top of the order. Bancroft has made a heap of runs in the Australian summer,” Taylor was quoted as saying by the ESPNcricinfo.
One thing I do like about Bancroft, which I also like about (Matt) Renshaw, is their ability to catch in the field. In the next year or two, we’re going to need to find two openers,” the legendary former Australia skipper concluded.
