Cameron Bancroft is a professional cricketer who represents the Australia National team, Perth Scorchers, Western Australia and last year was appointed as Captain of Durham County Cricket Club in the UK. In March 2018, Cam's life took a poignant turn as he was found to be complicit in an attempt to tamper with the ball during a game against South Africa in Cape Town, to gain an advantage which was not within the laws of the game. Shortly after, Cam took full accountability for his involvement in the incident and he was ultimately banned from all forms of professional cricket for 9 months. The incident sparked an unprecedented public outcry, especially in Australia where the culture of the team came under fire. Two years on, it's clear the incident was a before/after moment where the team has turned a corner and developed a reformed culture under new leadership, documented in a recent Amazon Prime series called 'The Test'. In this bout, Cam opens up about why he ultimately made a poor decision in South Africa and about how the 9 months away from cricket was particularly transformative for him, allowing him to reflect on placing more value on 'being true to himself' as opposed to 'fitting in'.www.unboxing-gym.comThis bout is brought to you in association with http://www.CricX.com - The Cricket Exchange Agency.

Cameron Bancroft is famous for the right and wrong reasons. He made a name for himself as a determined opening batsman from Western Australia and was at the start of a promising Test career when his life changed forever. All cricket fans know about the ball-tampering events that occurred at Newlands in South Africa in which Bancroft was in the centre of the action. In the months afterwards his reputation and with a 9-month ban from professional cricket, his cricket both hit rock bottom. However, that time allowed him to focus on other things in his life and give him a better perspective of cricket and also what his values are. He has since returned to playing with some success and worked his way back into the Australian Test side for the Ashes. At just 27 years of age, he has a long time left in the game but due to his actions at Newlands, he hopes it can be a lesson for others and he can be a better leader in the future due to what happened. In this episode we discussed: How as a 10-year-old Justin Langer gave him something special Cameron's obsession with getting better How words from teammate Coulter-Nile helped turn his career around How he learned to love leaving the ball in a recent second XI match How he has worked hard to forgive himself and be true to himself How he sees success and failure in the same light Plus a whole lot more Cameron is a deep thinker about the game and life which comes across in this episode. This is a fascinating chat which could have carried on for many hours. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it. Make sure you follow Bancroft on Instagram: @cbancroft4
