Bancroft mocked over ball-tampering role

Alex Hartley is currently on tour with England Women in India.

Cameron Bancroft has been mocked for his role in Australia’s ball-tampering row by England Women spinner Alex Hartley.

Hartley, currently on tour with the national side in India, reacted to Bancroft’s confession that he had attempted to change the condition of the ball using sticky tape and grit from the pitch with a pointed Tweet.

Reposting a message Tweeted by Bancroft back in 2013 which read “Speed cameras are very sneaky nowadays”, she added her own comment on top.

“So are TV cameras #SAvAUS,” it read.

Bancroft’s actions were first picked up on television, leading the umpires to investigate having been made aware of the images.
