Cameron Timothy Bancroft (born 19 November 1992) is an Australian cricketer, currently contracted to Western Australia domestically. After playing Under-17, Under-19 and Under-23 for Western Australia, he played several Test and ODIs for the Australian Under-19 cricket team; where he impressed with his high scoring ability, scoring 3 centuries, at an average of 50.90.[1][2] He made his List A debut for Western Australia against Tasmania on 16 October 2011,[3] and his first-class debut a week later. In August 2012, Bancroft partook in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, where he scored the second highest total (196 runs) for Australia, second only to William Bosisto, the Australian Captain.[4][5]

Bancroft was selected in the Australian test squad to tour Bangladesh; however, that tour was cancelled for security reasons. Bancroft and the rest of the team returned to their states, and Bancroft belted 176 off 155 balls in the first Matador Cup match of the 2015–16 season.

He made his Twenty20 International debut for Australia against India on 31 January 2016.[6]
