Bairstow under probe for alleged headbutt on Bancroft

Bairstow under probe for alleged headbutt on Bancroft

Bairstow and Bancroft crossed paths shortly after England arrived in Australia, where they started their tour with a tune-up at the WACA. That was during a tour of England by the Windies team, and Bairstow was one of three England players penalised for unprofessional behaviour following an European Central Bank internal disciplinary proceeding about player conduct during the One-Day International series against Windies. England are already in the soup after their mainstay all-rounder Ben Stokes is still under police investigation after being involved in a fight0night outside a Bristol nightclub.

It is understood that Bancroft, who at that stage had not been selected for the Australian team, did not retaliate.

He plays county cricket for Yorkshire, and made his England Test debut as against West Indies in May 2012.

Wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow is now being investigated for allegedly headbutting Australia's debutant Cameron Bancroft, which occurred in Perth at the beginning of England's tour of Australia.

It's understood the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) spoke with Bairstow on Sunday night after reports surfaced that an altercation had occurred a few weeks ago when England was in WA for a tour match.

At the time, Bancroft was not really in serious contention to make the Ashes squad. "They are the ones who have come up with this".

When then Australian coach Mickey Arthur became aware of that episode several days later Warner was disciplined and ultimately forced to sit out the first two Tests of the Ashes series that followed, as well as being sent to South Africa to briefly join an Australia A tour. There has been no report of any incident from the venue, security or police and there was no injury reported.

But he was one of three England players fined by the European Central Bank in the wake of a night out in Bristol that saw Ben Stokes arrested for alleged assault.

The incident could have implications for Bairstow, who is now in Brisbane for the Ashes tour.

There is an acceptance within the European Central Bank that they can not keep the players confined to hotel rooms on tours that last for weeks on end but the last thing they needed was more accusations that any of their players had done anything wrong.
