Cameron Bancroft Signs Up with Gloucestershire for the 2024 Cricket Season

Cameron Bancroft, an Australian batter, signed a deal to play for Gloucestershire in all forms in 2024. He will be back this year.

Australia’s selectors recently didn’t pick Bancroft to replace David Warner as the Test opener, but he has been very good for Western Australia in the last two Sheffield Shield seasons. Early this week, the Australian Cricket Awards gave him the award for men’s local player of the year.

Excited to Return to Gloucestershire

In 2016 and 2017, he played for Gloucestershire. Before that, he played for Durham (2021) and Somerset (2023). “I’m delighted to sign with Gloucestershire and to have the chance to return to the club where I started my county career,” said Bancroft.

The club will get him in April, and he will be free for most of the summer. “I love playing county cricket and the opportunity to play all formats with the club is something I’m excited about,” he stated. “With a new coach and a talented playing group, I’m looking forward to the season ahead.”

Mark Alleyne as their new coach

Mark Alleyne was named coach on Thursday after Dale Benkenstein left for Lancashire. “I’m excited to have someone of Cameron’s ability and experience on board for the season to come,” he said. “We already have an exciting group of players here so to add to that with a player of international calibre in Cameron, it’s fantastic for me as a coach to have such depth in the squad.”

Gloucestershire are transitioning after losing senior players Ryan Higgins (Middlesex) and Benny Howell (Hampshire) the previous season. Last year, they finished bottom of Division Two in the County Championship, failed to qualify for the T20 Blast knockout stages, and lost Metro Bank Cup semi-finalists.
