Cameron Bancroft, Australia’s batter, was sent to hospital after falling off his bike ahead of the Sheffield final against Tasmania on Thursday at WACA and has been ruled out of the event. 

Cameron Bancroft, Australia’s batter, was sent to hospital after falling off his bike ahead of the Sheffield final against Tasmania on Thursday at WACA and has been ruled out of the event. Western Australia captain Sam Whiteman confirmed that Bancroft is OK and out of the hospital. Furthermore, he discussed the cricketer’s condition, stating that the 31-year-old has numerous scratches on his body. Bancroft’s departure is a major setback for Western Australia, since he is the team’s second-highest scorer in the tournament. The opener has 778 runs and an average of 48.62.

“[I’m] pretty gutted, but glad to hear he’s okay and out of the hospital.” I believe it was fortunate that things did not turn out worse. He has quite a few scratches. Hopefully, we’ll see him around the WACA this week; I know he’s disappointed to miss it, but he’ll make it around the team. “He’s done a lot of heavy lifting this year to get us into the final,” Whiteman said to reporters Wednesday.

In Bancroft’s absence, D’Arcy Short will open the innings, while Jayden Goodwin may be elevated to No. 3. Teague Wyllie is anticipated to replace Bancroft in the playing XI.

Goodwin, the son of former Zimbabwe Test batsman Murray Goodwin, has had an amazing season, striking his first-class century against Queensland to solidify his position as Western Australia’s number three. He also scored 85 in difficult batting conditions against Tasmania at Bellerive Oval last month.
Wyllie has not featured in the Shield since early February, and has struggled this season with an average of 17.80 from six matches. He began the season with a valiant 94 off 251 deliveries at No.3 against a full-strength Victorian attack, but faltered and was unsuccessfully moved down the order.
