BBL Squad Release: Game 4

29 December 2018

Cameron Bancroft

The Perth Scorchers have made two changes to their 13-player squad to take on the Hobart Hurricanes in Launceston tomorrow (Sunday December 30) at UTAS Stadium, for their fourth game of the KFC Big Bash League.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Sam Whiteman returns to the line-up after missing the last match due to illness, and Cameron Bancroft is welcomed back after serving his nine month ban following the events in South Africa.

The pair return to the squad and replace young paceman Cameron Green, and wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Inglis.

In the last game against the Strikers, Inglis sprained his left foot and sustained a moderate grade ‘turf toe’ injury and is likely to miss four weeks.

“It was a disappointing for Josh to get injured last game, he played really well with both the bat and gloves and really stepped up when he got the opportunity,” head coach Adam Voges said.

“It’s great to have Cam back in the squad again. It’s been a long year for him and now he can move forward and get back to playing cricket at a high level.

“He’s been pretty excited to be back so he’ll bring energy and experience into our batting line up.

“Coming off our first win at home a few days ago we are hoping to use that momentum heading into this game and get our first win on the road.”
