Bancroft's second chance: Disgraced cricketer makes Durham debut

Australian cricketer Cameron Bancroft returns as the county club captain after serving a ban for cheating.

    A year ago, Australian cricketer Cameron Bancroft was at the centre of one of the biggest scandals in the game's history.

    Now, after serving a one-year ban for ball-tampering along with two other fellow Australian cricketers, he has immediately signed as the captain of an English county side - Durham County Cricket Club.
