5 Australian players who will look to cement their spot in the Test side: The Australian team is all set to tour Bangladesh for 2-match Test series which will begin from October 9. This series presents a good opportunity for the new bunch of Australian players to find their feet in international cricket. After the Ashes series, many Australian players retired from Tests which has vacated many places in the side which is right up there for grabs. The 15-man Australian squad includes two uncapped players as well while there are many players returning to the side who would like to make a fitting return to the national side and cement their spot in the whites.

Today, let’s have a look at 5 Australian players who will look to cement their spot in the Test side:

The Western Australia opener, Cameron Bancroft is one of the two uncapped players included in the Australian squad. Bancroft belongs to the old school of cricket and has a very sound technique. With Chris Rogers taking retirement from Tests and Warner missing out due to injury it will be a perfect opportunity for the 22-year-old batsman to stake his claim for the opening slot. Recently, he had played an exemplary knock of 150 runs for Australia A against India A in Chennai. The most remarkable thing about Bancroft is the very fact that he is very good of his feet and is even apt at sweeping the spinners. Australian greats Shane Warne and Justin Langer rate him very highly. Cameron’s temperament and patience has been hailed by many Australian experts as well. Bancroft is touted as the next big thing in Australian cricket.
